This course meets with REL-B 412.
To explore how religion intersects with popular culture, this discussion-intensive seminar takes a global, international perspective on Buddhism. How do media such as manga, film, and fiction shape and change our understandings of Buddhism? What does it mean for a human being or cultural product to be “Buddhist?” And how might Buddhist ideas illuminate our own participation in popular culture? Course materials range from Hollywood movies to philosophical treatises.
