Description

Postcolonial and Subaltern Studies have been important in critiquing the nation and its citizens. These have also helped critique the nationalist project that drives the Indian state. In this course, we will critically read and compare approaches based on the changing nature of subaltern studies, socio-economic and socio-cultural identity formation, and the way dissent manifests itself in India. No pre-reqs and no specific major required. To register, please email a statement of intent to Morgan Khan and Suyesha dutta at identity.dissent@gmail.com
