Aim: This course has been designed with the aim of introducing students to a history of Delhi through the many centuries of its existence. Since it is wide in scope hence instead of a chronological history, it will be a thematic understanding of the city’s long history—its several cities; its culture; important historical moments and their impact on the city; and the contemporary problems of urbanisation.
The course also has a strong fieldwork component, which will visit field sites both historical and contemporary, and undertake oral history exercises about sites and memories of the city.
Hence, this course is not limited to classroom teaching alone.
Films and guest speakers are also a novel component of this course.
