University of Toronto Centre for South Asian Studies
University of Toronto Centre for South Asian Studies (CSAS) is a key international hub for critical conversations across the humanities and social sciences on South Asian worlds, both inside and outside the subcontinent.
CSAS publications reflect an interface of approaches that has distinguished South Asia research in recent years, weaving deep specialist and empirical knowledge, transnational methods, gendered readings and cutting-edge theoretical investigation.

Transliteration for non-roman scripts
For languages with non-roman scripts (such as Devanagari, Arabic, and others), most library materials use transliteration. Library transliteration follows "Library of Congress Romanization Tables" for each language. To search the library materials for words in these languages, use LC tables to transliterate the original non-roman script for each language, such as Bengali ; Gujarati ; Hindi ; Marathi ; Panjabi (Punjabi) ; Sinhalese ; Sanskrit and Prakrit ; Tamil ; Tibetan ; Urdu.
