India — A Cultural History
Over the past 5,000 years, the cultures and peoples of the Indian subcontinent have developed in fascinating and complex ways. Today, India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh comprise over 20% of the world’s population and form one of humanity’s most dynamic and significant core groups. India claims with reason to be the “Mother of Religions” – at least of the religions of the East. Indians have long been a part of globalization through trade, migration, and the spread of its major religions. In this workshop, we will discover that the best way to understand present conditions in the subcontinent is to sketch the development of their peoples from the earliest human presence in the region up to the present. The thread we will trace is the changing, yet somehow consistent, culture of India.
