ASCL 51.07 Gods, Demons, and Monkeys: The Ramayana Epic of India

The ancient Indian epic known as the Ramayana is a stirring, martial tale of gods, demons, and monkeys.  Beginning with the classical Sanskrit version composed as early as 200 B.C.E., India has produced hundreds of different versions of the Ramayana, in different languages and media, with different agendas and for different audiences.  We will examine this epic tradition in all of its complexity, making ample use of different forms of media.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course.
