Section Information for Spring 2023
This course will explore how European thought since 1492 began to construe, theorize, and theologize about who and what were the Indigenous peoples of the Americas, namely as "Indians." In turn, this course will also explore how the encounter with Indigenous peoples of the Americas precipitated modern, comparative, and critical understandings of "religion." Finally, this course will examine how the study of key concepts deemed to be definitive of Indigenous religions (e.g., animism, totemism, shamanism, etc.) has played a unique role in modern theories of religion.
Enrollment limited to students with a class of Advanced to Candidacy, Graduate, Junior Plus, Non-Degree or Senior Plus.
