RELB 5435 - Formations of Buddhist Modernity


This class explores the issue of modernities as they take shape in relation to Buddhist cultures. As part of this, the class will also explore notions of the secular, as secular ideas often coincide with forms of modernity. Such explorations will require sustained side-glances at developments in Western countries and in some non-Buddhist contexts (particularly Hindu South Asia).
