REL 43 Buddhism in America

This course will focus on the transmission, growth, and transformation of Buddhism in America—treating American Buddhism not as an Asian tradition transplanted onto American soil, but rather as a distinctive regional variety of Buddhism that has its own distinguishing characteristics. We will focus on the history of Buddhism in America, major varieties of American Buddhism (including Zen, Tibetan Vajrayana, Theravada, and Soka Gakkai), and contemporary issues in American Buddhism.

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.
