Credits 3.00 PeopleSoft Course ID 014467

This course examines the history of British India during the 19th and 20th centuries in relation to how the British colonial state interacted with India’s natural environment. Students will learn how the British attempted to understand and control India’s hilltops, forests and wildlife in effort to govern more efficiently, profitably and effectively. They will learn that this was not without challenges, however, as colonized subjects spoke up and acted out against British authority. ​
