Course Description:
This course examines the ways in which the past is narrated, recorded and remembered. Using
examples from South Asia and elsewhere, we will think about how societies produce
authoritative historical narratives about their pasts. How does power operative in the making and
recording of history? Whose stories are told, whose are silenced? In recent years scholars have,
in different ways, questioned the privileging of the documentary archive as providing authentic
access to the past. They have considered the issues of how historical evidence is produced, and
the often fraught relationship of the history that emerges from written documents with other
forms of social memory.

5. History, Historiography and Philosophy of Science
Course Description:
This is a philosophically oriented and historically reflexive course on the nature of science,
scientific inquiry and scientific progress. It will begin with an extended discussion of the nature
of science. It then takes its cue from the fact that the history of science poses in acute fashion the
general historiographic problem of periodization and the measurement of change. The selections
from the phenomenological tradition examine the new mathematics of the early modern period,
and the new conception of number as providing the model for, and index of, scientific inquiry.
We will then proceed to take as our guiding thread, a conceptualization of change -- the
problems thereby entailed in the metrics to be adopted thereby examining the nature of
scientific advancement. Finally we will debate, with the help of our interlocutors, the nature of
proof and the implications for notions of truth and verification. [Instructors will be free to choose to focus on specific thinkers or themes].
