Project #6017 - History of Modern South Asia

Readings mentioned in each question will be shared with you.

 

1) Different social classes have competed for social and political power in South Asia.  Each class had a different role under the British and subsequent to independence 1) Select any one class (e.g., peasants, proletariat, Anglicized professional elites, feudal landholding elites) and 2) trace its role and development through the colonial period and up to the present.  Be sure to use specific evidence to support your overall thesis.

 

2) During each of the three sections of the course (prior to Examination One, between Examinations One and Two, after Examination Two), we drew on a variety of source materials.  1) Select any one source from each of these three sections and 2) compare and contrast the a) identities of the authors,  b) assumptions and use of evidence by the authors, and c) conclusions reached by the authors.  Be sure to use specific evidence to support your overall thesis.

 

3) We have seen continued tension over regional versus national identity over the period 1700-2013.  Discuss what you argue is the most important feature of this tension.  Be sure to use specific evidence to support your overall thesis.

 

4) We have examined aspects of the political history of South Asia from 1700-2013.  Analyze three of the most significant political changes in South Asia during this period.  Be sure to use specific evidence to support your overall thesis.

 

5) Throughout the period 1700-2013, we have seen a continuing debate over the nature of South Asian society and the ways to “reform” it. Select any one source from each of the three sections of the course and compare and contrast the way(s) their authors define and evaluate "reform" of South Asian society. Be sure to use specific evidence to support your overall thesis.

 

6) Many of the authors we read consider Indian society to be essentially Hindu and/or Pakistan and/or Bangladesh to be essentially Muslim.  Others question that orthodox religious values are appropriate for themselves and/or for their country.  1) Select any one source which argues or presupposes that India is essentially Hindu and/or Pakistan and/or Bangladesh is essential Muslim and any one which questions that and 2) compare and contrast these two sources about this issue. Be sure to use specific evidence to support your overall thesis.
