The South Asia Faculty Network is an "an internet resource center for educating faculty, students, and the larger public about contemporary South Asian social, economic, and political issues. "
South Asian studies faculty were very actively involved in the 2006 Californian Hindu textbook controversy, almost entirely in opposition to allegedly revisionist edits to California's textbook curriculum on Hinduism and India, as suggested by two American Hindu organizations. The South Asia Faculty Network website archives most of the associated faculty letters , reports , and testimony .
The South Asia Faculty Network website was launched in February 2006. As of May 2006, the site's owners or webmasters are not listed on the site, and no contact information is provided.
