About

This is the blog of the South Asia Language Resource Center (SALRC) at the University of Chicago.

The South Asia Language Resource Center is a collaborative effort funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s International Education and Graduate Programs Service. The Language Resource Center at the University of Chicago is one of fifteen nationwide that exist to improve the capacity to teach and learn foreign languages effectively. SALRC primarily focuses on the needs concerning South Asian language pedagogy in American universities. A list of participant institutions may be found here.

The purpose of this blog, in keeping with the mission statement of the South Asia Language Resource Center, is to:

  • Create and disseminate new resources for teaching and research on South Asian languages, mostly via the World Wide Web;
  • Develop a shared infrastructure for delivery and archiving of South Asia language resources; and
  • Share infrastructure and approaches with other institutions having overlapping language interests, such as other Language Resource Centers, most notably those for the Middle East and Central Asia.
