Welcome to the South Asian Literary Association

The South Asian Literary Association, or SALA, promotes knowledge of, and scholarly interest in, the languages, cultures, and literatures of South Asia and the South Asian diaspora.

Membership in the Association is open to all individuals and libraries, institutions, and organizations interested in South Asian literature, culture, languages, and philosophy, as well as in comparative studies.
