X. COURSE CONTENT:
Exchanging Meta-for (m) s: films and the Indian Imaginary

Ever since Benedict Andersons useful theorization that nations are, in essence, communities that
are imag(ined) into existence, the question of what roles IMAGE(s) play in producing what we
believe is a nation and our feelings of belonging to it has taken central stage.
In India this question is especially apt vis--vis film and their concommitant artworks (songs,
posters, trailers etc.) Think for a minute about the representations of an agrarian feminized India
in the movie Mother India, or how movie Roja portrayed what patriotism mean, or even how,
more recently, the movie Delhi 6 in which the main protagonist returns to old Delhi to find
himself anew.

Indeed, so pervasive is the relationship between films and Indian national and self imagination, it
immediately begs certain questions: 1) What kind of images of social reality have films helped
the nation and its peoples adopt, 2) What and in which areas(s) has been the specific contribution
of such images to the national imaginary, 3) How has the nation, its geopolitics, techno-politics
and other such pactices, in turn, provided much fodder for films?

We shall unpack these and many more questions in this course through an analysis of films as
well as secondary literatures that explore the relationship between visual cultures and
nationalism.

X. COURSE CONTENT:

How do we know what we know? What is the role of the observer in science? What is
consciousness? How do we know that we are not brains in vats? Is there an objective
reality? Does time really exist? How do our theories of space and time depend upon
our perceptions of space and time? What is empathy? Is human consciousness
fundamentally different from animal consciousness? From artificial intelligence?
These and other questions are considered in this inter-disciplinary course, open to all
students. No science background, except curiosity and a spirit of enquiry, is needed.
We will learn about measurement in quantum mechanics, functional brain imaging
studies, proprioception and synesthesia, anosognosia and phantom limbs, mirror
neurons, the limbic system and the God module. Social, political, religious and
philosophical attitudes on consciousness will also be addressed, but the emphasis will
be on empirical evidence supporting various theories. This will be an inverted
course in the sense that instruction will be through a combination of reading
assignments, group discussions, projects, as well as short video presentations and
lectures. Students are expected to do library research, write term papers, and
participate actively in class discussions.

IX. DISCIPLINES TO WHICH THE COURSE MAY BE OF INTEREST: All

X. COURSE CONTENT:

What happens in our brain when we dance or see somebody dance? Why do we move the way
we do? What does it mean to understand an action or a movement as such? Why do we have
the ability to imitate the actions of others and how does it help us learn? How do we apply this
understanding in a social context in real time to interact successfully with each other, compete,
collaborate and communicate?

Understanding the way a dancer moves may provide answers to some of these questions. A
dancers skill requires not only expert physical ability but also a wide range of cognitive skills
and intelligences. Learning to move in different ways, with difference pace and qualities, to
express feelings with the body, to interact with space, rhythm and sound, the course seeks to
understand the process of cognition and the types of intelligences used by a dancer in order to
produce dance. Through a repertoire of movement and the use of reflective analysis, the course
challenges the classical view of intelligence that most of us have absorbed either from education
tests or by living in a culture which endorses a particular view of intelligence.

Objective: The course should help students to understand the current issues in Higher
Education all around the world with stronger focus on issues relevant to India. It should help
students explore, participate, question the current practices in the higher education followed
across the world. It should encourage students to engage in guided discussions towards
analyzing those issues, and encouraging them towards further participation in research, policy
studies in areas of economic development, economics of education, higher education,
educational policies and such.
Overview: The course will start with an overview of development of Indian higher education
system and the related issues, followed by the study of issues all around the world. Are there
any common concerns across the globe? What are the difference between developed and
developing countries in that respect? How the higher education has evolved over the years in
India, who are the stakeholders, what is the purpose of the college or university, whom are
they serving, how is the academic scenario changing in a multicultural society, who should be
in college, the quality versus quantity dilemma financing in higher education and such
questions will be discussed in class.
The pedagogy will be through a combination of lecture sessions on conceptual areas, and
discussions of related research papers as given in the list of readings at the beginning.
Throughout the semester students will be encouraged to choose areas of their interests for
preparing term paper. The students will be divided in groups and one common area will be
selected by all group members for the term paper. The group should discuss the theme with
instructor before finalizing the area. All groups will present their term paper during in-class
sessions to be scheduled during the semester.

workshops and production of work to familiarize the students with the nuts and bolts of prose writing.
Over the duration of the course, we will discuss the cornerstones of writing memorable prose, such as
using autobiography to create fiction, choosing the right point of view from which to tell the story,
creating a memorable character, coming up with a beguiling plot, drawing a setting, framing affecting
dialogue, finding the right voice for the story, and, finally, editing and revising a rough manuscript into a
polished finished piece. The emphasis will be on writing as a reader, and reading as a writer. We will
look at a number of stories by accomplished writers and identify various techniques that students can
utilise in their own work. By the end of the course, students should be well-versed in the nuts and bolts of
prose fiction, and have learnt story-telling techniques that they can use to create fiction as well as
narrative nonfiction.

X. COURSE CONTENT:
a. Our seminar explores the cultural production, consumption and circulation of the western
scholarship relating to the Orient, that characterise European overseas expansion in the
modern era. The class introduces students to Edward Saids Orientalism: Western
Perceptions of the Orient (1978), a reference point in history, sociology, area and cultural
studies, and foundational text for post colonial criticism. The seminar takes at its basis,
Saids Orientalism and his seminal assertion that European political domination of the
Orient and the knowledge relating to its land, peoples, and cultures were interdependent.
Saids indictment of Orientalism has inspired a large body of historical scholarship which
elaborates colonial knowledge in relation to its imperial circumstance and has
simultaneously, laid the foundations of postcolonial criticism.
b. The present seminar will examine various forms of knowledge production and their use
within the colonised world, during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The topics
covered will include: anthropology, criminology and law; mapping, cartography and
census enumeration; science and medicine; philology; museums displays and exhibitions;
and nationalist discourse. Within these subject groupings, the seminar will emphasise
three themes: the use of technology; the construction of imperial identities and their
modes of representations; and, the appropriation of and resistance to these formulations.
The reading material relates to British imperial circumstances in South Asia. Students are
encouraged to read outside of the suggested texts, and if appropriate, place the discussion
in a wider geo-political framework.
