REL 19.39 Auto/Biography Across Buddhist Traditions

In a tradition that teaches that there is “no self,” who or what is the subject of a Buddhist auto/biography? How have Buddhists represented the beginnings, middles, and ends of lives that are shaped by cycles of rebirth? What kinds of practices and relationships do these stories inspire or constrain? This introductory-level course responds to these questions by examining diverse practices of telling life stories from across the Buddhist world and their ethical implications.

Degree Requirement Attributes


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.
