HIST 3430 - Ancient Indian Culture/Society

This course examines the history of one of the ancient, rich cultural heritages of the world, the Indian subcontinent.  In this course we will trace Indian history from ancient period to 1000 C.E. and our survey will not confine itself to the modern political limits of India.  We will pay special attention to interconnections between religion, politics, social institutions, and gender ideology.  The course will address the development of Indian society from tribe to state to civil society.  In particular, the course stresses the nature of culture-contact and exchange, and the development of a composite culture and civilization of South Asia.
