South Asia Forum (SAF)

The South Asia Forum (SAF) is a forum for researchers, students, and everyone else with an interest in South Asia. It is organized by Prof. Johannes Quack’s chair at the ISEK - Social and Cultural Anthropology, Zurich University.

Our SAF-Newsletters informs about upcoming events related to South Asia in the area of Zurich. Those interested can join our Mailinglist.
*Due to covid-19 and until further notice, the SAF-Newsletter is momentarily suspended.

The South Asia Forum regularly hosts research lectures by invited guests and other events of interest to scholars of South Asia. The forum thereby provides a framework to discuss contemporary research on South Asia, to reflect on developments in the region, and to connect with colleagues interested in this field. Everyone is cordially invited to join!
