1930: Indian Civil Disobedience (V1329)
Time and Place: 1930: Indian Civil Disobedience
Module details for 2011 cohort.
FHEQ Level 5
This module looks at Gandhi and his ideology leading up to the defining moment in Indian nationalism, civil disobedience in 1930. While South Africa helped to develop his ideology it was perfected in the context of resistance to British colonial rule in India. The salt march provided a dramatic stage set for the encounter between the British Raj and popular nationalist sentiment. Colonial authority was undermined by the symbolic illegality of the march and other associated events. The participation of women for the first time, the emergence of popular nationalism and the divisions within it in the form of Hindu-Muslim rivalry will be the themes running through this module.
