JWST 70.03 Orientalism and Origins of Religion

The growing nineteenth-century German empire stimulated interest in the Near and Far East on the part of scholars, novelists, and artists. This course examines Germany's fascination with the cultures of India, China, Africa, and the Middle East, the origins of religion as a unifying concept, and the impact of the new field of Oriental Studies on German political, military, and colonial activities from the 1830s to the 1930s. Suzanne Marchand, German Orientalism in an Age of Empire, will be the textbook for this course.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
