India and the World: Fiction and Film About India and Globalization

ENGL 254
Spring 2017
Section: 01  
Certificates: Muslim Studies, South Asia Studies

India has made international headlines for being a globalization success story and a new global superpower. In this course, we will read literature and watch films that shed light on how globalization has actually impacted the country. We will discuss various questions: Is globalization a good thing for India? Is it inevitable? Is it really something new? We will read texts that examine key historical and social issues, including Partition, colonialism, and Hindu-Muslim conflict. We will read English language texts and also fiction translated from Urdu, Hindi, and Bengali.
