India is an ancient civilization and one of the most creative cultures in history, serving as the birthplace of Hindu yoga and Buddhist meditation. At the same time, India is a rising world power that will play an important geopolitical role in the 21st century. This is a travel course to that fascinating and influential country. In the spring prior to our summer travel, students will take a preparatory course introducing them to Indian history and culture. A travel component will occur over a three week period in June. The focus of our interest will be India’s religious pluralism, struggles for justice, and cultural expressions such as art and architecture. Expected spring 2016, alternate years. 4 credits.
