University of Nebraska Discussion on South Asia

March 13, 2017

Event Overview

The University of Nebraska will convene an open discussion for faculty, staff and graduate students across its four campuses who have interest in the countries and cultures of South Asia. The meeting is intended to enable participants to develop contacts with other NU counterparts who have language abilities or regional expertise for the countries of South Asia, broadly defined as Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, Nepal, India, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

The goals for this Discussion on South Asia include the following:

  • Enable faculty, staff and graduate students with expertise or interest in South Asia to meet each other and become acquainted with each other’s expertise and/or research.
  • Identify possible networks or teams of people across multiple NU campuses who might collaborate on research projects, serve as specialists in courses or research, or otherwise share their expertise with others across NU.
  • Enhance the university’s international collaborations and global engagement.
  • Identify individual and resources that may be useful to those teaching about or conducting research in or about South Asia.

Immediately following this discussion, a public presentation will be given by His Excellency Dr. Hamdullah Mohib, Ambassador of Afghanistan to the United States, from 12:00-12:30 in the Chancellor’s room at the Milo Bail Student Center, UNO, Omaha.
