This course explores the anti-colonial nationalist movement of India with a specific focus on M.K. Gandhi, a major political activist and thinker of our times.
It examines the evolution and practical application of his ideas and techniques of non-violent resistance, satyagraha, and his attitudes toward the economy, society, and the state.
In addition, students will be exposed to the process of interpreting historical documents and constructing a historical narrative of events.
This course is cross-listed with AIST 2018.
