ANTH 110P India and Indian Diaspora through Film

Students in this course view the complexity and diversity of the Indian Diaspora through themes such as family, caste, food, gender, politics, religion, sexuality, and immigration policies affecting the diaspora. How do the vastly diverse groups of Indian Americans perceive their own ethnic identity? How do they respond to the dual impulses of assimilation and integration? And how might their self-conception influence the composition of their social networks? Course explores these themes through readings and Bollywood films.
