SATR 3300 - Literature & Society in South Asia: Breaking the Cast(e)

Dalit literature is perhaps the most remarkable literary movement to emerge in post-independence India. It is the voice of the most marginalized section of India’s population, those formerly known as untouchables. Until the advent of Dalit literature, the lives of Dalits had seldom been recorded in Indian literature. We will read fictional and non-fictional narratives of Dalit writers, and watch films to visualize and comprehend their lives. Prerequisite: SATR 7300 (graduate section)

Credits: 3
