The course is designed to offer an overall understanding of the historical processes the Indian society and polity underwent between 1857s and 1950s. These processes in critical ways conditioned the making of the subsequent Indian reality.
The course, to be covered in 41 modules, will be delivered over a period of 8 WEEKS, or roughly over 2 calendar months. Between 5 to 6 lectures will be released every week. There will be a fixed slot for discussion, in which the Instructor and Teaching Assistants will respond to questions or queries raised by students.
Every one of the 8 weeks is devoted to a particular theme divided into a number of lectures. Together, they present a historical perspective on the trajectory of the various processes, events and personalities, which left an imprint on the emergence of India as a nation state. It is designed with the typical UG history student in mind, and conforms to the UGC prescribed syllabus. Yet, its content and scope will appeal to anyone keen to study and understand the emergence of modern India.
