This packet includes the syllabus of a trimester-long senior elective course on India, designed to begin with two writers of Indian descent, Salman Rushdie and Bharati Mukherjee. The packet contains the daily assignments for the first half of the trimester, which include all of the reading assignments from Rushdie and Mukherjee, as well as the guide for viewing "Salaam Bombay!" an Indian film. It also contains a handout detailing an approach to a Rushdie short story, "Yorick," and two handouts for in-class writing assignments on Rushdie. Additional handouts in the packet are a reprint on the English of India from "The New York Times" magazine, a review of "East West" from "The New Yorker," and an article by Rushdie, also from "The New Yorker." A handout describing a student research project also is included. (BT)
