Testimonial: Christian Novetzke, Macalester College

Christian Novetzke

The ACM India program was the keystone in my career as a scholar of South Asia. At the time, it was perhaps the only opportunity in the American academy to study Marathi, and the program gave me a firm foundation in that language. I learned to live in India and to conduct real field research on the program. I was introduced to key scholars and intellectuals in Pune, and this gave me inspiration for future work. I also had the time of my life and made lifelong friends, several of whom also became professional scholars of South Asia.
