Certificates: International Relations, South Asian Studies

This course will trace the history of India's long engagement with Europe and the Americas and will draw on a rich and diverse--and global--literary outpouring across centuries, as well as popular and parallel (or "art") cinematic representation from the past six decades created in both South Asia and the West. Contemporary literary accounts, including much period fiction, will be paired with scholarly investigations of the social, military, economic, political, and religious themes that marked the five centuries of India's world history.
