Besides creating an overview of the larger strokes of the regional formations throughout Indian and South Asian history, the course integrates cases that show the relevance of past events and their interpretations for present day identity formations.
Through class interaction and minor writing assignments, the course builds student competences in reading and understanding academic texts and in elementary academic essay writing.
