RESOURCES FOR SOUTH ASIAN LANGUAGE STUDIES IN THE UNITED STATES, REPORT OF A CONFERENCE CONVENED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA FOR THE UNITED STATES OFFICE OF EDUCATION (JANUARY 15-16, 1960).
BROWN, W. NORMAN
IN 1960 AT THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA A CONFERENCE WAS CONVENED TO SURVEY THE RESOURCES AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF LANGUAGE AND AREA STUDIES OF SOUTH ASIA AND TO MAKE RECOMMENDATIONS FOR A PROGRAM OF DEVELOPMENT. THE 23 PARTICIPANTS INCLUDED PROMINENT AMERICAN SCHOLARS FROM UNIVERSITIES WHERE SOUTH ASIAN LANGUAGES ARE TAUGHT AND REPRESENTATIVES OF THE FOREIGN SERVICE INSTITUTE AND OTHER INTERESTED GROUPS. ELEVEN WORKING PAPERS WERE PREPARED FOR THE CONFERENCE AND ARE PUBLISHED HERE. THE PAPERS DEAL WITH AMERICAN RESOURCES FOR SOUTH ASIAN LANGUAGE STUDY AND SUGGEST PRIORITIES FOR FURTHER WORK ON NEW TEXTS, RESOURCE MATERIALS, TEACHING METHODS, AND CURRICULUM GUIDES. IN A "REPORT OF THE CONFERENCE," ALSO PUBLISHED IN THIS VOLUME, THE EDITOR SUMMARIZES THE TOPICS COVERED AT THE CONFERENCE MEETINGS AND PRESENTS THE SPECIFIC RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE PARTICIPANTS. THIS BOOK IS PUBLISHED BY THE UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA PRESS, 3436 WALNUT STREET, PHILADELPHIA, PA. 19104, ($4.00). (JD)
