An Introductory Course in Indian Studies for Small Colleges: A Suggested Annotated Syllabus.
The author outlines an introductory undergraduate course in Indian Studies constructed on the configuration of a social science cluster built around a central disciplinary core of political science. The objective of the course is to build an understanding of contemporary India. As a matter of convenience and organization the course is divided into four historical periods: Ancient India, Muslim India, British India, and Independent India; this provides the opportunity to introduce historical background material systematically, and starting points to introduce certain present day institutions and processes with roots in another era. Family, caste, village, and linguistic area are described, conceptualized, and discussed; reading selections are included. Suggested media techniques include: showings of slides; photographs of people at work; exhibitions of artifacts, art, and handicrafts; educational and commercial films; and an annual recorded concert of Indian music. SO 001 619 through SO 001 623 are related documents. (Author/SBE)
