Teaching Interests

I belong to two departments, Anthropology and Sociology and Asian Languages and Civilizations. Part of my normal teaching schedule consists of two courses dealing with India, and these courses are offered simultaneously in my two departments. One of these is a general introduction to India called "Indian Civilization." This course is strictly for beginners, but I also offer a more advanced course on India called "Religion and Society in the South Asian World." Many students take the latter without previous academic work on India, but some South Asian background is helpful in benefiting fully from the course. I also teach two courses on the more strictly anthropological side.  One of these, "The History of Anthropological Theory," deals with the development of anthropology as a discipline.  The other is a survey of anthropological writings about religion called "Anthropology of Religion."
