South Asian Languages and Cultures

South Asian Languages and Cultures is an immense and exciting field of studies that spans thousands of years, cultures, languages, traditions, and disciplines. In close synergy with faculty in the departments of History and Religious Studies at NU, ALC’s South Asian faculty offer a variety of both pre-modern and contemporary approaches to the Hindi and Urdu linguistic and cultural humanities. Our courses engage both ALC major and minor students as well as any student -regardless of their major and minors– interested in South Asian cultural and linguistic heritages, past and present.
