INST 3009 - The Search for Meaning in Literature and Global Regions

Hours: 3
Exploring the many ways both individuals and communities have responded to the problem of meaning, suffering and evil in the world. The primary lenses are those of Western literature and religious studies (specifically philosophy of religion and ritual studies). How have humans struggled to make sense of tragedy and learned how to cope with life’s hardships in different times and places, and what are our ethical responsibilities toward those who struggle in our midst?
Prerequisites: Junior standing or above, and a minimum of one course from at least four of the following INST threads: 2000, 2200, 2400, 2600, and 2800.
