Courses: Totally Epic: Ramayana as Literature, Discourse and Performance (RELGH309A01)

Fall 2013

This seminar will explore the classical Hindu epic, the Ramayana, in a few of the many literary forms and performance contexts in which it has flourished for the past two millennia. We will also consider the Ramayana as a discourse that has been used to present and contest ideas and ideals: a way of talking about everything from gender roles to political ideologies to the nature of the divine.
