Learn a South Asian language this summer!
The South Asia Summer Language Institute (SASLI) based at the University of Wisconsin – Madison is offering intensive summer courses in the following South Asian languages:
Bengali, Gujarati, Hindi, Malayalam, Marathi, Pashto, Sanskrit, Sinhala, Tamil, Telugu, Tibetan and Urdu
SASLI will be offering Third-Year Hindi and Third-Year Urdu in addition to the elementary and intermediate level courses. All other classes will be offered at the elementary and intermediate levels only.

One award of $7,500 plus tuition fee remission for one academic semester will provide support to an Indiana University graduate student of the Russian East European region near the completion of his or her doctoral program in any field. The fellowship is intended for applicants who have completed all course work, passed all required preliminary examinations, received approval for their research proposal, and completed all formal components of their dissertation field research or data collection.

REEI offers two grants to support research-related travel for preliminary dissertation field activities such as exploring potential research sites, archives, and other research resources, establishing institutional affiliations, and identifying and meeting with scholars, archivists and specialists. The grants are primarily intended for doctoral students who will apply in the next academic year for funding to conduct dissertation research abroad.

Indiana University’s Art History Association seeks papers for its 27th annual graduate symposium: "Occupying the Ivory Tower." This year, we will create a constructive space for emerging academics and museum professionals to discuss and critique the very institutions we are training to inhabit. By challenging the notion of the “Ivory Tower,” we will examine the impact art and art history can have both inside and outside of the institutions that house them.
