Histories of Education and Citizenship in India

Fall 2014

This seminar will introduce advanced undergraduate and graduate students to writings on the relationship between education and citizenship in India. We will begin with tracing the relationship between education and the crafting of new demands in the colonial period, engage with the new literature on rights and duties of citizens that were first developed in the immediate aftermath of Partition, and conclude with discussions on citizenship and rights that have, following recent legislation, witnessed a resurgence.
