REL 19.29 Women and Religion in Japan

This course examines how Japanese religious traditions (such as Shinto, Buddhism, and others) have informed the lives of women in premodern and modern Japan, and the roles that women have played as nuns, patrons, lay practitioners, and religious specialists. We will examine both what religious traditions said about women and womanhood, and how women interacted with religious views and practices, many of which denigrated or limited women’s participation.

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.
