Instructor: Catherine Elaine Prueitt.
Course Description: This course will examine the philosophical implications of the many tellings of the Ramayana, a Hindu epic that has shaped the worlds of billions of people over the course of thousands of years. With a focus on primary texts in translation, we'll begin with the classical Sanskrit Ramayana of Valmiki, move into medieval devotional Ramayanas, and end with modern and contemporary mobilizations of Ramayana narratives. We'll deeply engage this ancient epic as we critically explore how it continues to shape ethics, politics, social structures, and gender ideals in South Asia to this day.
