Colonialism is not just about economic exploitation; it has a serious impact on the civilizational ethos and culture of the colonized. The Hindu civilization has been under attack for the last thousand years, due to which it has changed significantly. In recent times, while there has been a detailed study of the economic impact of British imperialism, a detailed and critical study of how imperialism decisively changed the consciousness and culture of the Hindu people and society, especially the Hindus, has not been adequately conducted in mainstream academia. The field of Postcolonial Hindu Studies fills the gap and is a collection of courses that examine the cultural legacies of colonialism and imperialism and focus on the human consequences of the control and exploitation of Hindu society and civilization. The series of courses will deal with the effects of European and Islamic imperialism with at least the following objectives: 1. To restore the worldview, paradigm or cosmology of the ancestors of the Hindus before their colonization. 2. A detailed study of the measures taken by the colonizers to change the cultural consciousness of the Hindu people. 3. A comprehensive study of the distortion and distortion of the Hindu worldview introduced by European Indologists. 4. How these distortions took on a life of their own in Western narratives, Indian narratives and post-colonial Hindu consciousness. 5. Correcting misinterpretations and restoring their ancient worldview, how Hindus can move forward and honor their unique and distinct cosmology. Courses in this concentration will also create opportunities for students to interrogate and critically examine contemporary mainstream and media narratives regarding Hindu culture and society and their roots in the social and political power relations that sustained colonialism. They invite students to explore the impact of colonial consciousness on the formation of post-colonial Hindu identity, self and society, as well as the Hindu response to colonialist thought and contemporary social, cultural and political narratives surrounding colonizers and the colonised.
