Distance Education: Web Course Information
- From the Instructor:
- While a knowledge of South Asian history, religions and politics would be helpful, the course is aimed at those who have no previous knowledge of Indian literature or culture. It only requires the student to be open and curious.
- Course Specific Requirements:
- There are four books required for the course. They can all be found at the Sylvania bookstore. Two of the books (William Buck's Ramayana & R.K. Narayan's The Dark Room) can be found in older (cheaper) editions on-line. For example, University of California has just reissued a new 'anniversary' edition of the Ramayana, but it is more expensive than the previous one. The old copy, now out of print, will do just fine.
