A. Blackburn.

Taught as a seminar, the course engages recent theoretical literature on the relations between religion, colonialism and nation formation, alert also to the ongoing and contested nature of claims to purify or refine the nation. This theoretical literature is read in conjunction with historical and ethnographic materials from South and Southeast Asian contexts, which allow us to explore the intellectual promise and limitations of the theoretical work in question.
