Primary Instructor:

This readings course serves as an introduction to the field of modern South Asian history. It will provide students with an overview of the historiography and history of the Indian sub-continent from the seventeenth to the 20th century. The aim of this course is to introduce students to the current state of play in South Asian historiography on some major debates and themes in the field. The list of themes covered in the course will by no means be exhaustive; but it will provide students with a broad mapping of the field. The readings for the course, by the same token, are not meant as a list of “greatest hits:” rather, they provide openings for exploring certain themes and methodologies.

The course prepares students for a field in Modern South Asia for the preliminary examinations as well as for writing research papers (Hist 715) in the Winter term. All students interested in modern South Asia, however, are welcome.

Intended Audience:

The focus of the course is not strictly disciplinary; students interested in the South Asian past from different disciplinary perspectives are welcome. At the same time, students interested in the changing contours of contemporary historiography, not limited to South Asia, are also welcome.
