India WomanIndia's multifold diversity lies at the core of the challenges and opportunities it faces in the political, economic, and social realms. This fully online course will provide educators with ways to approach this daunting diversity and to use it as a lens to examine India’s political development from the movement for independence and Partition to the recent election victory of Narendra Modi. Participants in the course will also examine the challenges India has faced as it has attempted to develop its economy over the last 60 years, paying particular attention to urbanization, the wealth gap, and environmental issues. Social issues from gender to education and a look at differing perspectives on Bollywood will round out the course in the final week. A rich collection of readings, maps, photographs, documents, video, literature, and art will inform our explorations throughout the course. 

Open to all K-12 educators.
