Enroll in ASIA 30841: "Contemporary India: Politics, Society and the Economy"

Author: Tessa Raymond

India, the second-largest country in the world in terms of population, is widely known as a study in contrasts. It is the largest democracy in the world, it has the third-highest level of gross domestic product by some measures, it is one of the highest growing economies and, as a member of the BRICS, it is considered to be an emerging economic powerhouse. Yet it also has the world's largest concentration of the poor according to some measures, deep socio-economic cleavages, and conflicts that often erupt in violence. After providing a brief historical background, this course examines these contrasts by analyzing recent developments in the politics, society and the economy.

Film Showing: Silence (2016)

-

Location: Browning Cinema

Silence

Martin Scorsese has been working since 1990 to film Shusaku Endo’s 1966 Silence. Freed from production hell, Scorsese started filming two years ago and, after a long editing process, opened the film at the Vatican this November. Silence sees two 17th-century Portuguese Jesuit priests (Andrew Garfield and Mishawaka-native Adam Driver) travel to Japan after rumors swirl that their mentor (Liam Neeson) has committed apostasy while on his mission to convert the Japanese to Catholicism. Arriving in Japan, the Portuguese priests seek their mentor and encounter a warm welcome from underground Christians but brutal violence from the Japanese ruling class, which forces painful questions regarding their faith commitment. …
