This course is designed to be an introductory-level seminar that explores the historical development of gender activism and feminist movements in India. The course will study critically how women’s movements in India have responded with great acuity to the changing social and political climate of the nation as it went from a "colonial" possession to "postcolonial" and eventually "globalized" nation, terms that we will study in some detail. We will read a wide variety of texts – literary, historical, and popular cultural in order to understand the wide range and types of women’s activism. We will also draw comparisons with U.S.-based feminist movements where relevant in order to explore questions of "race" and "gender" as they are similar and different in women’s organizing globally.
