In addition to an examination of the region, course material will also address the South Asian Diaspora, particularly throughout Australia, East Africa, Southern Africa, Canada, the Caribbean, France, Germany, the United Kingdom, and the United States. Topics may include imperialism and decolonization; the making of postcolonial nation-states; migration, labor, and citizenship; and the global circulation of caste, class, religion, gender, and sexuality.
