FLS 2303 - Literature of India and South Asia

Credits: 3 hrs
This course is a study of selected literary works and related cultural products from India and South Asia. The thematic focus is broad, including works from the Ancient Hindu and Classical periods, early Buddhist tales, and medieval mystical poetry from a range of traditions. Though the texts are from before the eighteenth century, the course explores the persistent legacy and globalization of Indian ideas, as well as the diaspora of South Asias which echoes the past and spreads this legacy. Readings, viewings, lectures, and discussion are in English, and no prior knowledge of the region is required. 
Pre-requisite(s): None.
