This is an interdisciplinary seminar that explores the history of South Asian women. Through interdisciplinary theoretical and creative texts, we will explore the links produced between women, culture, and nation in the South Asian context. Our primary texts will range from historical and anthropological documents of the colonial era to literature, film, and music of the contemporary period. We will learn in the process how to understand 'South Asian women' as a historically-specific category that has been consolidated along gender/sexual, class, caste, and religious lines, paying particular attention to the implications of that for South Asians today. This is an introductory survey course that does not assume prior knowledge of South Asia or of feminist theory. However, full engagement with the readings and audiovisual material is expected to generate familiarity with both fields. You are expected to come prepared to discuss texts intensively in class. Buying the coursepack and reading ahead of schedule are highly recommended.
