About SALA

SALA was founded by the late H. B. Kulkarni and Satya Pachori of the University of North Florida in the early seventies to promote the knowledge of South Asia in the American academy by bringing interested faculty and students to its conferences.

SALA publishes a Newsletter carrying announcements of its two MLA sessions, scholarly activities and accomplishments of its members, new titles in the field, and other valuable information for those interested in South Asian studies.

SALA also publishes a refereed journal, the South Asian Review (SAR), a representative scholarly forum for the examination of South Asian languages and literatures in a broad cultural context. The journal invites healthy and constructive dialogue on issues pertaining to South Asian literatures, arts, and cultures.

Membership dues include subscriptions to the Newsletter and the South Asian Review.
