(GB) (CA-AS)      
Fall. Next offered 2017-2018. 4 credits.

Co-meets with ANTHR 7543 .

S. Sangren.

This course explores topics in the anthropological study of Chinese religion, including aspects of cosmology, ritual, and mythology as they relate to Chinese society. A premise of the course is that religion embodies values basic to Chinese culture. Consequently, study of Chinese religion provides important insights into Chinese society. By the same token, Chinese religion must be understood in the context of Chinese social institutions (family, community, state).
