ANTH189 - MUSLM POLTCS MDRN S.ASIA: Muslim Politics in Modern South Asia

India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh together have the largest population of Muslims in the world. This course provides an introduction to the history of Muslim communities in modern South Asia: their reconstitutions in the modern period and their role in the formation of the region's nation-states in the twentieth century. We will read primary sources - political speeches, newspaper reports, diaries, fiction, poetry, film and music - and interpret them historically as we acquaint ourselves with South Asian Muslim cultures. No prior knowledge of South Asia is required.
