ASNS2623 - India: Tradition and Modernity
Semester 1, 2014 | Credit Points: 6
Coordinator: Ulrich Timme Kragh
This unit explores assumptions underpinning Indian thought and culture with specific reference to Indian religious traditions. In particular traditional notions of the individual, authenticity, and the concept of dharma will be addressed through an exploration of social and political structures, gender and the family, and forms of artistic, literary and religious expression. A key focus will be on the continuity of tradition and its interaction with modernity and the implications this has for understanding today's India.
