Religion & Identity in South Asia
T | 3:30-5:50 pm
In this course we will critically analyze the various ways people identify themselves and draw boundaries to separate groups from each other, using a series of case studies focusing on South Asia. While these divisions involve many elements, such as nationality, linguistic identity, gender, and class, aspects of human experience commonly identified as religious frequently intersect with these divisions. Throughout the course, we will develop various theoretical reflections on issues of identity and contested boundaries based on these case studies.
