CVA2004 - INDIA: WORLD RELIGIONS, IDEOLOGIES AND SOCIETY

INDIA: WORLD RELIGIONS, IDEOLOGIES AND SOCIETY

CVA2004: India: World Religions, Ideologies, and Society 4 Intermediate Liberal Arts This portion of Babson's BRIC experience is a four-credit intermediate liberal arts course. The guiding framework for this course will be an historical, cultural and political study of the major religious traditions and political ideologies that have informed and distinguished the key periods of Indian history up to today. A dramatic fact about India is that the Hindu, Buddhist, Jain and Sikh religions all had their genesis there and they all still inflect everyday 21st century Indian life. Islam arrived as part of a foreign conquest, yet today India has the second largest Muslim population in the world. India has also been a critical place of refuge for endangered religious communities including people of the Zoroastrian (Parsi) and Bahai traditions. Although different from religions in many ways, political economic ideologies are also belief systems with revered symbols and rituals. Indian nationalism and its distinctive style of secularism and 21st century globalism are the pivotal modern ideologies that we will explore. BRIC India is based in New Delhi, the capital of India, and formerly the capital of both the Mughal Empire and British Raj. We will use three different learning methods to accomplish the goals of this course. One will be scholarly reading and discussion, with guest speakers, films, and other classroom activities. A second will be experiential and mini ethnographic work in the field. This will include guided site visits to such places as the Taj Mahal, and participant observation of religious rituals at various places of worship. The third method will be learning from social activists and taking small social actions ourselves. We will do this in encounters with people working to emancipate child laborers and trafficked women, people working to preserve endangered traditional crafts while employing rural women, and people providing children of extreme poverty a superlative education. By the end of the course you will have basic literacy in five world religions and a nuanced understanding of the diversity within each tradition in a 21st century urban Indian context. You will also have new tools of cultural investigation that can be applied to any cultural scenario you encounter in the future. Prerequisites: RHT and AHS

ENV4610 - ART AND ECOLOGY

ART AND ECOLOGY

ENV4610 Art and Ecology in the Anthropocene 4 credit advanced liberal arts This trans-disciplinary course is co-taught by an artist and an ecologist and will focus on integrating visual art practices and scientific methodologies as a means of observing, understanding, interpreting, and creatively responding to human driven disturbances and the restoration of nature. We will use art and science and the intersections between these disciplines to investigate the environment through: water, soils and clay, the movement of plants, and landscape ecology. Students will learn a range of contemporary artists whose work is dependent on and responsive to the natural environment. Students will also explore scientific processes for healthy ecological function and human-driven disturbance. Students will be challenged to visualize their scientific observations and creative responses through drawing, graphing, 2 D mixed media, mapping/modeling, and sculpture. It is understood that students will likely be entering the studio art practice at a beginning level, therefore prior art experience is not required. Pre-reqs: 2 intermediate liberal arts electives
