The City in India. Revised Edition.
This is a guide to a series of 8mm loop films on the Indian cities of Kanchipuram, Jaisalmer (two films), Fatehpur Sikri, Chandigarh, Gwalior, Bombay, Simla, Goa, Jamshedpur, and Ahmedabad. Each four to five minute film is a source of material for self-study and for group discussion by students in introductory civilizations courses, comparative urban studies, and other courses, primarily at the undergraduate level. This unit is one of three model units (see ED073980), all dealing with India but reflecting certain basic themes in human society and using differing techniques for university-level teaching. These units, bringing innovative ideas to those interested in teaching about the Third World, suggest urbanization as a theme for historical exploration. The guide defines the concept of the city as a functioning entity and makes some suggestions for coordinating the films and the guide materials with various student activities. The guide includes an historic and economic context for each city; a bibliography on urbanization and Indian cities; a table of 1971 Indian census data; and a section called Scene Identifications, which coordinates with the filmstrips.
