REL 131: Studies in Hindu Tradition
This course will provide a selective overview of the Hindu religious
tradition, a tradition that embraces an extraordinary range of diverse
languages, regional variations, philosophical systems, and ritual
practices. This course will attempt to identify some of the key elements
that bind together this complex tradition, while surveying some of its
distinctive and diverse forms, including gendered symbols and practices.
Over the course of the semester we will turn our attention both to
classical Hindu texts and to non-textual sources, including rituals and
artistic forms of expression.
