RELS005 - WOMEN AND RELIGION

This course looks at the contrast between the model of the virtuous woman, and the instructive power of the uncontrollable woman, from 1800 to present in Hinduism, Christianity, and Islam. Drawing examples from a variety of historical contexts and traditions, this course will touch on issues of religious empowerment, piety, leadership, and theoretical questions involving gender, spirituality, the body and the intersection of class status and religious performance.
