Topic for Spring 2022: Modern South Asia

Along the way, we will discuss colonial governance, caste and inequality, the rise of anti-colonial nationalism, the struggle for independence, communal violence, the partition of India, sport and film, the South Asian diaspora, and the recent turn toward majoritarian and ethnonationalist politics. We will draw on a variety of primary documents in the form of treatises, film and literary accounts while referencing secondary sources by historians and social scientists.
