ANTH 5760 - Tibetan Religion in Anthropological Perspective


This seminar approaches a complex, major religious tradition, Tibetan Buddhism in its larger sociocultural contexts, from an analytical, anthropological perspective. Through ethnographies, a selection of comparative and theoretical elements, and film, we analyze the diverse array of Tibetan religious forms, and address larger anthropological issues and debates on religion and society (or politics), ritual, and the anthropology of texts.
