The objective of the course is to understand the rich and complex history of Hindu-Muslim interactions in one of most diverse regions in the world. Using literature, art, film and critical scholarship, we will study the ways in which religious identities have been negotiated and contested in the public sphere. We will attempt to respond to the question whether religious strife between Hindus and Muslims in South Asia represents a "clash of civilizations" or something more interesting.
