This week, please produce a draft of the final project (see the prompt below). The point of producing a draft of the project is simple: the earlier you begin, and the more you re-write, the better your final grade will be. As an added incentive, you can earn extra credit by swapping your draft with a colleague. You must produce a draft and provide feedback before midnight on Dec. 7th in order to earn this extra credit.
If you would like to earn extra credit, you may swap your draft with a colleague, and get credit for reading THEIR draft and giving them constructive and helpful feedback. Please read carefully the directions in the assignment “Draft/feedback of the final project,” below.
To take advantage of this opportunity, you’ll need to access the prompt for the final, which is:
For your final project, you will be asked to show:
facility with the major concepts of the course,
correct terminology and relevant examples
a compare-and-contrast analysis
a proposed site visit (virtual or in-in person) together with a clear statement of why you think this is a good place for students in college world religions courses (what will they see or learn by visiting?
There are three separate questions to address. Please organize your work accordingly:
1. How has your definition and concept of religion changed, and what helped you changed your mind? For instance, many people would say that a definition of religion necessarily involves a god or gods. But as you know know, Buddhism really does not have the concept. Still, Buddhism is a religion (and no, you cannot use this example). Here, please revisit and refer to the materials assigned in the week of Sept. 7 and the week of Nov. 23rd. Cite any relevant source from this section to frame your answer, and use materials from the book or the webpages to show concretely what changed your mind and how.
2. Next, engage in comparative religions exercise by holding up ONE similarity between two different traditions, and ONE point of contrast. Be concrete in choosing your examples, refraining from discussing the religions as a whole. Focus on one aspect/ritual/concept/idea in different traditions. Remember, the textbook has consistently argued that religions are different, so you might begin by discussing the difference before arguing that there can still be illuminating similarities, such as… For this, please rely on and cite from the book, God Is Not One.
3. Finally, you have made a number of virtual visits to religious communities and museums. Now it is your turn. What would be a good visit (whether virtually or in-person) for students in this class to do, and why? This DOES NOT NEED TO BE A SPECIFICALLY RELIGIOUS COMMUNITY OR PLACE. In fact, some of the most interesting ways to study religion in Atlanta mean visiting a museum, looking at a street mural, or attending a cultural event. What would you recommend for future students, and why?
I’m not worried about an introduction or a conclusion. In fact, you may feel free to organize your responses numerically. In that sense, this is not a traditional essay. However, I do expect you to present your answers fully and elegantly, using relevant examples from the book and the course materials. As always, proofread your work striving to avoid errors of spelling, syntax, or grammar. Answer each question fully, honestly, and creatively showing that you have really thought about the question and re-read/re-visited the course materials in preparing your answers.
The examples that you use to show what you mean (especially quotes) should be cited using MLA, which means using both in-text citations, as well as a Works Cited list at the end.
