BOMBAY TO MUMBAI: HINDUISM AND LITERATURE


Under the British Raj, Bombay was imagined as a gateway city connecting the industrial West to the mystical East. This course examines its tumultuous transformation into modern Mumbai: a paradoxical mega-city where orientalist fantasies of a "pure" Hindu past are both vigorously sustained and vehemently countered in literature and film.
