Notes on SASLI 2021 program:

Some or all languages may be offered in a synchronous remote format for summer 2021. Hired instructors should be willing to either travel to Madison for in-person classes or work from a remote location, dependent upon the mode of delivery.

  • All levels of Sanskrit are expected to be taught in a synchronous remote format. Applicants for Sanskrit should prepare for this mode of delivery.
  • The mode of delivery (remote or in-person) for all other SASLI classes will be determined at a later date.
