A Clash of Civilizations? Hindus and Muslims in South Asia
Harvard Divinity School, Taught by Harpreet Singh
The objective of the course is to understand the rich and complex history of Hindu-Muslim interactions in one of most diverse regions in the world. Using literature, art, film and critical scholarship, we will study the ways in which religious identities have been negotiated and contested in the public sphere.
The primary objective of the course is to engage students with the modern day challenges affecting South Asia, and to examine a range of entrepreneurial attempts to solve these problems.
The Humanitarian Field Study Course will focus its attention in January 2013 on strategic planning and critical thinking methodologies in the context of the implementation of international humanitarian and human rights norms in South Asia.
