This course will introduce students to a number of cutting-edge issues relevant to the study of contemporary India through a critical lens of borders and bordering processes. Students will be exposed and introduced to a range of key themes, concepts and debates which will be utilised to examine how borders are evoked enforced and maintained not only within India but also across the territorial borders which it claims. This course will be accessible to students with limited familiarity with the region of South Asia but will also be challenging for students who may have some acquaintance with South Asia and India. Students who took ‘Understanding Contemporary India’ in 2021 are welcome, as the topics covered will differ from the curriculum last year. Each session will be run using a range of different teaching methods, resources and tools such as film, case studies and interaction in order to make the course enjoyable, tangible and stimulating. Through each topic, students will develop a familiarity with a range of cutting-edge topics and issues pertaining to contemporary India.
