SASNET will become a research-focused center in 2020

SASNET is proud to announce that as of 2020 it will become a research-focused center in the Faculty of Social Sciences. This development testifies to growing importance of South Asian Studies at Lund University, and the confidence the university has in SASNET’s ability to create a strong research environment and network of scholars. Until 2020, SASNET will remain as an autonomous part of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies (CMES).

SASNET logoAlready in 2015, SASNET began to focus its activities on research. Andreas Johansson, a historian of religion, was hired as Director of SASNET in November 2016. Johansson took concrete steps in developing SASNET into a research-oriented center by hiring researchers and co-creating the South Asia Initiative with the Swedish Institute of International Affairs. One of Johansson's main goals was to secure permanent funding for SASNET from Lund University. This goal was achieved in January 2018. The details of the organizational change from network to research-focused center will be worked out during 2019.
