Lived Religion in South Asia

Anne E. Monius


This course explores the lives, practices, and experiences of contemporary South Asians from Hindu, Muslim, Jain, and Sikh perspectives. Concepts central to South Asian worldviews will be carefully considered in the context of both rural and urban day-to-day activities, rituals, and family life. Readings are drawn from a wide range of ethnographic literature, and films documenting a diverse range of religious, cultural, and social settings from across South Asia will frequently be shown. Note: Course has additional hour to be arranged.
