This seminar will be team-taught by a postdoc from the Center for Chinese Studies and a visiting scholar from the Institute of South Asian Studies. It will present the cultural politics of marginalized places and populations through respective case studies in China and India. These case studies shed light on indigenous culture and history beyond Asia, by making connections between humanistic and social scientific approaches and engaging students in rethinking cultural diversity and social disparity around the world.
This seminar is part of the newly launched “Opportunities for Interdisciplinary Teaching Series” (OFIT) by the Humanities and Social Sciences Association (HSSA). OFIT aims to increase and exchange knowledge across disciplines in the Humanities and Social Sciences. The goal is to create a learning community for developing teaching skills among graduate students, visiting scholars, and visiting student researchers. Take this opportunity to meet new people and like-minded scholars, experience a new teaching technique, and make new colleagues!
Since the OFIT Series is a learning community participants will be asked to provide some feedback after class.
