What does a chair mean?
An endowed chair is an academic unit under a specific department in an institution of higher education to teach and research, with the financial support of donors and it lasts indefinitely.
What is Tamil Chair, Inc.?
Harvard University has accepted a proposal to set up a “Sangam Tamil Chair” in the Department of South Asian Studies with the focus being on Tamil Sangam Literature and all Tamil literature influenced by it. Tamil Chair Inc. is a non-profit 501 (C) (3) organization set up specifically to collect funds for the establishment of the Tamil Chair. Donations given to Tamil Chair, Inc. are tax deductible.
What is the need for a Tamil Chair?
Tamil language has ancient literature dating back to around 300 B.C.
Tamil literature is a vast field and there are many areas which need to be researched. Tamil needs to be taught at institutions where other classical languages of the world are taught. It is a matter of prestige for the Tamil community to set up a Tamil chair at the oldest and most reputed academic institution in the United States. It will also help produce Tamil scholars who will be trained in modern research methodologies.
This chair at Harvard could become the guiding light for other institutions that are engaged in Tamil studies and research. For more information, please visit: http://harvardtamilchair.org/.
