REL 80.06 The Creation of "Buddhism"

This seminar will focus on “Buddhism” not as a living religious tradition, but as an academic object—created, solidified, and defined by and within the Western academy.  How was “Buddhism” created in the libraries and academies of the West, and how does this creation continue to define what “Buddhism” is today—both within the Western academy and among Asian Buddhists themselves?

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.
