More Information

Section Description

This course is a survey of some of the important religions in Southern and East Asia, Hinduism, Buddhism and Daoism. At the same time, we will interrogate the definition and categorization of "religion." While the religions of Asia have a very long history, the modern usage of "religion" is only about 150 years old. We will examine some of the consequences of that in how religious actors understand their religious practices in both premodern and modern contexts.

Section Expectation

In this course, you will be responsible for daily readings, reflections on these that you will post 2x a week, and several responses each week to your classmates' reflections. You will be responsible for writing a 1000 word paper at the end of each unit on the material (4 units). The reading is 25-40 pages each day (we will read two novels as part of the reading).

Evaluation

You will be evaluated on your reflections, and on the papers that you write at the end of each unit.
