Beyond Burma

Students consider the relationship between religion and society in Myanmar. They study about recent military violence against Buddhist monks in Myanmar by reading and discussing the article " What Makes a Monk Mad". Students research and curate museum exhibits on the history, practice and spread of Buddhism throughout the world. They write essays in light of Buddhist thought and tradition, speculating on the implications of the violence against monks on Burmese society.
