This course is designed for students interested in Sino-Indian interactions. We will cover the historical and contemporary exchanges between India and China given their dramatically different cultural, political, and historical experiences. We aim not only to understand the uniqueness of the connections between India and China, but also how the two civilizations have contributed to global exchanges and flows. The course will highlight similarities and differences between the two societies, their mutual perceptions, cultural exchanges and influences, patterns of development, causes of conflict as well as possibilities for cooperation, and their role in world history and the contemporary global economy. In addition to reading primary and second materials, students will also study films and documentaries. NOTE: This is a graduate-level course offered in collaboration with the Graduate Program in International Affairs. Students should have completed at least 60 credits with a B or better to register for this course. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for permission to register for this course or with questions.
