Semester Offered: First Semester
Full Course
Credits: 4 credits
Attribute: 4SS, CD

South Asia (India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh) is home to the largest Muslim population on earth. The region witnessed the rise of great medieval Muslim empires; it experienced early tensions with the western world under 200 years of colonialism; and in the previous century, it authored the first constitutionally governed Islamic state. This seminar explores the history of Muslim South Asia from 1700 to the present. Drawing on diverse sources (fiction, film, primary texts, scholarly literature), the course reflects on Muslim lives under colonialism, religious radicalism and revival, and the troubled trajectories of Islamic nationalism.
