From Buddhism to Bollywood, Kalidasa to Kashmir, the Bhagavad Gita to Bhopal, and the Indus Valley to IT, we all need to know more about India to function in our globalized environment. I-100 Introduction to India will give you just that: an overview of modern India and a sense of how India became the world power it is today. Each week India Studies faculty (from such departments as Communication and Culture, History, Law, Religious Studies) will give you glimpses of the latest research in their respective fields. Each week we’ll watch a movie chosen to help us build cultural literacy in the region, illustrating that week’s themes. Come learn about India with some of the leading scholars in the country!
