Course Description This graduate seminar will expose students to major themes and issues in the study of South Asia. The course will provide a serious intellectual foundation for students wishing to pursue specialized, directed research in the region. Broadly speaking, themes for consideration include: cultural history and early modernity; capitalism and political economy; genealogies of political thought; anticolonialism; caste and religion; and gender and feminist history. The thematic focus of the seminar will change each time it is taught. However, the pedagogical aims of the seminar will remain constant. That is, to maintain a focus on discussions about the archive; conducting field research; framing a robust research question, and more.
