Course Description

This course, open to graduates and upper-division undergaduates, will involve the interdisciplinary study of South Asian communities overseas. Students will read descriptive material on specific South Asian overseas communities for the first half of the course, augmented by class lectures and discussions. Readings for the remainder of the course will be issue-oriented texts on specific communities and writings which compare several communities. Disciplinary perspectives will include: anthropology, creative literature, politics, religion, and sociolinguistics. The theoretical perspective will be broadened by a brief examination of some issues in the Chinese and African diasporae.
