Presentations

Challenges of teaching "Hinduism" - Catherine Cornille
An amalgam as it is of different traditions, teachings, texts and practices, the Hindu tradition is notoriously difficult to capture or to teach. In this presentation, we will look at different ways in which Hinduism is approached and exchange ideas on best practices to introduce this tradition to students. We will also focus on questions of translation, and the advantages and disadvantages of using Hindu and Sanskrit categories in understanding the tradition. 

Catherine Cornille is a Professor of Comparative Theology at Boston College. 

 

Cultural Studies Method for Teaching About Religion - Diane L. Moore

Diane L. Moore is a lecturer on Religion, Conflict, and Peace, a Senior Fellow at the Center for the Study of World Religions, and Director of the Religious Literacy Project and the Certificate in Religious Studies and Education Program at Harvard Divinity School.
