The Center for Khmer Studies is pleased to announce that the Committee on Southern Asian Studies (COSAS) of the University of Chicago has joined our international consortium of institutions which collaborate with CKS’ research activities and related academic initiatives.
The University of Chicago is one of the leading centers for the study of South and Southeast Asia in the world with a diverse, distinguished group of faculty members in multiple disciplines, particularly across the social sciences and humanities. The University sustains an exceptional library and digital resources for scholarly research on Southern Asia. COSAS is the foundational institution of this research and teaching enterprise. Countries in which COSAS has scholarly expertise in Southern Asia include Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka; and in Southeast Asia, Burma (Myanmar), Cambodia, East Timor, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Papua New Guinea, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Tibet (as an autonomous region), and Vietnam.
CKS looks forward to an enriching and mutually productive relationship with faculty and graduate students affiliated with COSAS and the University of Chicago.
