About this Unit
This unit looks at the role of south Asia in global processes from historical, cultural and economic perspectives. It traces three broad themes: the significance of early south Asian contacts with other cultures; the impact of colonial interactions with Europeans; and the development of postcolonial identities in the Indian diaspora. In particular, we consider how new hybrid formations emerged as products of cross-cultural exchange. The unit contrasts India’s role as an agent of cultural globalisation from the past with its place as a recipient of economic globalisation in the present. We also look at the ways in which issues of caste, religion, social class, gender and unequal access to resources have remained significant factors in thinking through the experience of India’s relationship with the wider world.
