In this seminar, we are going to trace developments in the British perception of India from the very first encounters in the late sixteenth century to the end of British rule in India. We will come across a wide range of perspectives: from informal and formal colonialism fuelled by the desire for wealth and power to Indophiles immersing themselves in Indian culture. This seminar will give you an opportunity to study inter-cultural encounters and the texts, images (and even some music) created as a result of such contacts. This seminar will also give you an opportunity to get acquainted with people such as Thomas Coryate, who, from 1612, walked on foot from Istanbul to India, William Jones, who in the eighteenth century discovered that Indian and European languages were related, and Fanny Parkes, who described her experiences in early nineteenth-century India in a remarkable diary.

A reader will be made available from the usual place in Reckhammerweg. As always: think, enjoy (!), annotate, and look things up if necessary. Requirements: thorough preparation for each session, active participation, and, if applicable, written work/exam according to your particular Studienordnung.
