REL 321.001 Religion & Identity in Southeast Asia
This course critically analyzes the ways people identify themselves/draw boundaries to separate groups from each other, using case studies focusing on South Asia. While these divisions involve many elements, such as nationality, linguistic identity, gender, and class, aspects of human experience commonly identified as religious frequently intersect with these divisions. Throughout the course, we will develop various theoretical reflections on issues of identity and contested boundaries. INB
