Religious Nationalism, Ethnic Conflict and State Terror in Modern India: Cases from Kashmir, Panjab, Gujarat and Nagaland

Harpreet Singh


The focus of this course is religious and ethnic conflicts in modern India. We discuss the historical trajectory and dialectical interplay between different forms of nationalisms led by Hindus, Muslims, Sikhs and Nagas in the colonial and post-colonial periods. Materials to be examined will be drawn from a wide range of sources, from theoretical texts and human rights reports to ethnographic accounts and films.
