Events

SAP hosts a weekly seminar series.  For the Spring 2022 semester, we hosted both in-person and virtual events. In-person events typically meet at 12:15 pm Mondays in G08 Uris Hall and are open to the Cornell community. Virtual events typically meet at 11:00 am Mondays and are open to the public, but require registration. All times Eastern (New York) Time.

Videos of many past events are available on our YouTube playlist.

Our annual Tagore Lecture in Modern Indian Literature, now held in the spring, features an author from South Asia or its diasporas. We also partner with Cornell student organizations to bring South Asian musicians, dancers, and other artists for campus performances.
