The Politics of Difference: Marginalized Ethnic Groups in Asia

This seminar was team-taught by a postdoc from the Center for Chinese Studies and a visiting scholar from the Institute of South Asian Studies. It presented 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.
