POLI 341(C) 001 'Experiencing Ambedkar'

Course Description: Dr Babasaheb Bhimrao Ambedkar is most well-known for his critical role in writing Indias constitution. As one of the most prominent Dalit freedom fighters, his socio-cultural and historical significance is undeniable but how much is known about him as a thinker and writer? This course aims to study Indian political theory beyond the

Nehrus and Gandhis, as well as to challenge casteist and government-mandated assumptions. This seminar is a unique opportunity for students to delve deeply into Ambedkars intellectual contributions and living legacy, as well as to help create an environment where caste and casteism can be critically explored head-on.

Evaluation is based on participation, written essays, journal entries and presentations, as well as innovative open education
