The first phase of the endowment funded an annual public lecture series called the Rabindranath Tagore Lectures. These events feature distinguished South Asian writers from India and around the world. They present a series of seminars on various aspects of modern Indian literature written in the Indian regional languages as well as English. Tagore Endowment lecturers will visit Cornell for one week, present two or three seminars on a chosen topic and be available to interact with interested Cornell faculty and graduate students. Plans are now under way for an inaugural Rabindranath Tagore Lecture to be held in the fall of 1999.
