-  The partition of British India in 1947 produced the separate Muslim-majority and Hindu-majority states of Pakistan and India. This moment was the culmination of a long historical arc, in which religious identities were transformed and politicized under colonialism. This arc is the focus of our inquiry as we trace the development of a spectrum of modern Muslim subjectivities from the advent of colonial rule to the present. The first part of the course will consider a range of developments, such as the influence of modernizing Muslim ideologues, the role of Christian missionaries, the introduction of the printing press, and the creation of modern madrasa schools. In later weeks, as we trace the emergence of electoral politics and the violent partition of India in the twentieth century, we &~ will address how contemporary South Asian Muslim identities intersected with other articulations of identity such as caste, gender, class and political ideologies.
