Looking for an interesting Block 6 course?

RE352 Holy Men, Manly Men: Gods, Buddhas, and Gurus in South Asia.

Cults of masculinity have been intrinsic to South Asian culture for millennia. Whether in ancient vedic literature, or in the heterodox traditions of Buddhism and Jainism and the Hindu epics that followed; whether in the ascetic traditions of yoga, the popular puranas, or the lives of modern-day saints — the leading Man has been carefully fashioned to represent power, purity and prestige. This course examines such texts and traditions from diverse periods in Indian history in order to identify and deconstruct the ideologies that divinize masculinity and masculinize divinity. May meet either the Critical Perspectives: Global Cultures or Social Inequality requirement. Prerequisite: RE160 or RE170 or consent of instructor.

ANNOUNCING THE COLORADO COLLEGE DOCUMENTARY EXPLORATION GRANTS

A brand-new program will provide grants from $500-$10,000 to create character-driven documentary films that push students’ critical and creative boundaries. Proposed films should explore personal, social, environmental, or cultural perspectives to engage the audience and invite solutions for a more sustainable future. The program will also connect students with a network of CC alumni working in documentary film, who may serve as project mentors. All students in good academic standing at Colorado College, regardless of major and including graduating seniors, are eligible to apply. Filmmaking teams are supported and encouraged.

Please come to an information session and screening event with alumni partners/acclaimed filmmakers Travis Rummel ’01 (DamNation), Nick Rosen ’97 (Valley Uprising), and Aidan Haley ’09 (“Chocolate Spokes”) of Felt Soul Media and Sender Films on Thursday, February 1, 3:30 pm, Cornerstone Screening Room.

Don’t miss this phenomenal opportunity!
