Tamil Studies and Research (TSAR) is a group based at the York Centre for Asian Research at York University. It is a group formed with a commitment to developing Tamil Studies as an area of academic research and instruction at York University, and to bring international scholars, artists and activists in the field of Tamil Studies closer to the large Tamil diasporic community that resides in the GTA. Though relatively new in its inception, TSAR in currently engaged in a number of initiatives and partnerships to make these goals a reality. These include the annual Tamil Studies Symposium, the Tamil Resource Centre at York, and collaborations with public and community organizations.
