The Andrew W. Mellon Chair is an endowed position that provides an opportunity for its holder to undertake significant initiatives in historical scholarship, with departmental, decanal, and wider institutional support. The professorship carries a substantial research-travel fund and a teaching load of three courses per year.
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.
