Sophomore Seminar: Gandhi

HIST 181
Fall 2013
Section: 01  
Certificates: South Asia Studies

Mohandas K. Gandhi's life has been the subject of enormous historical, philosophical, and artistic reflection. "The Mahatma" continues to be a touchstone for religious activists, political theorists, and social reformers. In this sophomore seminar, we will seek to understand the man himself, his transition from Mohandas to Mahatma, and the history that surrounded him. We will learn in the process about the historian's craft, including how to find sources, use a library, and build an argument.
