Durham University is looking for two scholars of exceptional ability to join our internationally-renowned Department of History, taking up two newly-created posts in the history of South Asia: a professor/associate professor and an assistant professor.
We are making a major investment in South Asian history to expand and enrich that community, and we welcome applications from exceptional scholars in any chronological or thematic area of South Asian history that complements the research strengths of the Department. We are particularly keen to hear from candidates with expertise in one or more South Asian languages. More details about the respective posts can be found at

On 11th July, 2013, we launched our BASAS Campaign. We announced our intention to establish an endowment fund, and we pledged to use our expertise to ensure BASAS continues to support workshops, language training grants, and other initiatives to sustain the study and research of the countries and people of South Asia.
With an ever increasing membership we are aware that it is not always possible for everyone to join us, we are therefore adding to the association’s website, on an ongoing basis, audio podcasts from our Annul Lectures, and Annual Conferences.
