Fall 2019, SOAN 180A-01: FS: Introduction to South Asia (3). First-Year Seminar. Prerequisite: First-year class standing only. An introduction to the historical, social, political, cultural, economic, and religious aspects of South Asia. We discuss four different societal phases of South Asia--Sanskritization (the Hindu Kingdom, Antiquity to 1204); lslamization (Muslim Sultanate, 1204-1757); Anglicization (British Colonialism, 1747-1947); and Decolonization /Hybridization (Postcolonial South Asia, 1947-2019)--emphasizing contemporary socio-cultural and political economic issues and problems. Students examine South Asia's connections to global politics, economy, and terrorism, and collaborations with U.S. and global anti-terror war efforts. To offer a critical analytical framework for studying South Asia, this seminar incorporates insights from anthropology, economics, history, political science, sociology, and women and gender studies.
