30698 CULTURE CORPS The View from Here: India and the Pandemic   NEW!

From migrant workers walking thousands of miles and mass religious gatherings, to media frenzy surrounding the suicide of a Bollywood star and the unlawful arrest of activists, the political, social, and cultural landscape of India during the COVID-19 pandemic is what Sayan Bhattacharya refers to as “chaotic and spectacular.” In this course, Bhattacharya will use essays, films, news reports, and other media to explore some of the structures and circumstances generated by the pandemic, which in turn will give participants a glimpse of the complexity and richness that is India.
