Hinduism is a major world religion practiced by over a billion people, primarily in South Asia, but it also was the precursor of Buddhism, and along with Buddhism it had a major impact on the civilizations in East and Southeast Asia. This course will cover its origins and development, its literature, its belief and practices, its unique social structures and doctrines, its interactions with other religions, and finally its confrontation with and accommodation of "modernity." We will use reading materials, lectures, discussions, and audio and video resources.

The aim of this course is to study Sikh religious beliefs, practices, and institutions. The emphasis will be on the teachings of the founder, Guru Nanak, and the major doctrinal developments under subsequent Gurus. Particular attention will be paid to the scripture, the Adi Granth, and other Sikh texts as means to understanding the evolution of the Sikh community. The course begins with the examination of the formation of early Sikh tradition in the socioreligious context of North India and ends with the analysis of the historical and social processes through which the Khalsa Panth was consolidated. An essay of 3,000 words will carry 30% of the course marks. There will be two tests: a midterm worth 20% and a final worth 30%. The remaining 20% of marks will be allotted to the presentation and participation in tutorial discussions.
