ASIA 104 - Sex and Gender in India

1 unit(s)
(Same as HIST 104 ) From the ancient yet perennially intriguing Kama Sutra and the erotic arts of Khajuraho through the idealized beauty of the Taj Mahal, outsiders have long associated India with romantic love and sensual pleasure. Less well known are the real life histories of these and other major moments and monuments relating to sexuality and gender norms in the subcontinent, from ancient times through the modern era. Pushing beyond the sensational to discover a diverse set of norms and negotiable boundaries, we read primary source texts and select secondary scholarship from multiple perspectives to reconstruct the social, cultural, economic, and political lives of representative individuals and influential communities. Julie Hughes.

Not offered in 2017/18.
