South Asia Beyond New Delhi-Islamabad
In this course we shall focus on areas of South Asian politics, such North East India and Nepal, which are not as often studied. From the linguistic politics of the Brahmaputra Valley in Assam, to the Buddhist saffronization of Sri Lanka– we will delve into the non-security political angles that are not traditionally studied, yet are excellent for understanding issues such as religious conflicts and caste and tribal politics. Lectures and film screenings will be complemented with role-playing exercises and discussions with South Asia experts via Skype.
