“The South Asian Studies Association (SASA) 2018 Conference not only addressed academics, but provided a comprehensive approach to the challenges and opportunities within South Asia and its community of 1.8 billion people. Discussions ranged from topics such as education, philanthropy, geo-political issues, employment, culture, innovation and cross border trade. I was proud to be part of this year’s event, which was full of energy and viable solutions to address today’s challenges and opportunities across South Asia.”

“This year’s SASA Conference was my first substantive experience with the organization and the event exceeded all of my expectations. Thanks to Ken Silverman and the Board and their collective wisdom and years of planning, the Conference created the perfect environment for academicians, practitioners and business leaders to collaborate on trends and developments in South Asian culture, history and business. The event imparted presenters and attendees with the perfect blend of experiential knowledge and scholarship. The SASA Conference is unique in bringing together a diverse group of experts who do not typically interact but have much to gain from regular interaction with each other.”
