Theme semester: ‘India in the world’
Written by Maryanne George
India is the world’s largest democracy and a nuclear power. It’s a key part of the global economy and a major trendsetter in the arts. The country’s rich culture and growing influence will be explored in “India in the World,” the Winter 2014 Theme Semester in the College of Literature, Science and the Arts at the University of Michigan.
Students, faculty and the community will be invited to learn more about India’s history, culture, politics, economy, art, religions, architecture, music, philosophy, contributions to mathematics and sciences and its diaspora. Events scheduled from January through April are free and open to the public.
“By participating in the theme semester events, students and the community will discover how India is relevant to our everyday lives,” said Farina Mir, director of the India Theme Semester and director of the U-M Center for South Asian Studies.
