REL 1.11 Sisters, Sages, Seekers: Women and Religion

What might a Buddhist nun, a Jewish schoolgirl, and an Olympic swimmer have in common? This course explores how women around the world pursue self-transformation through religious and spiritual practices. Course materials include followers of Buddhist, Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindu, and Native American religious traditions alongside those who might be called "spiritual but not religious." We will consider how and why people use gendered self-disciplining practices – from meditation to athletics – while seeking life purpose and belonging. Open to all.



Distributive and/or World Culture


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.
