RELI 109 - (HP) Sex and the Body in Religious StudiesSemester Hours: 3
This course is designed to introduce the major contemporary theoretical moves scholars use to help them think about the force of sexuality and the body in religion (which we often think is only about the soul, spirit, belief). The bulk of the class involves close readings of selected contemporary theorists and issues. In the last two weeks of class, we will practice using these theorists as lenses for bringing into focus the role of the body, sexuality, and gender in a sampling of texts that record Daoist meditation practices.
