AMES 19 Introduction to South Asia

An introduction to the study of South Asia, with an emphasis on the formation of cultural identities. We will explore themes and debates from across a broad range of temporal, geographical, and social locations in the subcontinent. Interdisciplinary in scope, the course will survey aspects of South Asian religion, literature, social organization, and cinema. From the Rig Veda to Bollywood, what has defined being Desi?

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.


Not offered for the period of 17F through 19S
