Description: Concentrating on Buddhism in colonial India, Burma/Myanmar and Ceylon/Sri Lanka, this course examines the dynamic interactions between religion and modernity. It lays out the pressures of modernity and the ways in which Buddhism responded to them. Three broader themes of the course are the East-West contact, the modern-premodern negotiation and the local-global evolution.
