Courses: Brit Empire: Imagining Indias (HISTB258001)
Class Number: 1317
This course considers ideas about and experiences of modern India, i.e., India during the colonial and post-Independence periods (roughly 1757-present). While India and Indian history along with British empire and British history will be the ostensible objects of our consideration and discussions, the course proposes that their imagination and meanings are continually mediated by a wide variety of institutions, agents, and analytical categories (nation, religion, class, race, gender, to name a few examples). The course uses primary sources, scholarly analyses, and cultural productions to explore the political economies of knowledge, representation, and power in the production of modernity.
