In the beginning of the second millennium, a major literary transformation--vernacularization--occurred in South Asia. The focus of this course is this historical process that led to the development of vernacular literary cultures. The goal of the course is to introduce students to a range of north Indian literary genres-in Awadhi, Brajbhasha, Panjabi, Sindhi and Urdu-with an emphasis on religious, political and regional identity, and the ways in which literary production intersects with music and art of the region. All reading will be in English and no knowledge of languages of the region is required.
