ART 328 - The Buddhist Body


This course examines visual and textual representations of the human body in Buddhist art, scripture and literature as site of idealization, mutilation, sacrifice, and relic making, among other cultural practices. Interdisciplinary in scope, this course is neither limited to a specific tradition nor to a specific time period. Rather, it encourages students to explore individual interests in Buddhist texts, recent scholarship on Buddhist visual and material culture, and modern theories of embodiment, gender and sexuality. Every spring. (4 Credits)
