Scholarly Scoop: Seeing Through Religion

Friday, September 9, 2022

What is religion? We may take it for granted that religion is some thing out there in the world, but most cultures had no word for religion prior to the 19th century. And many of the things we call religions weren’t called religions until then either. In this talk, I’ll show you that religion is not some thing out there in the world; it is the glasses with which you see the world. I’ll help you take those glasses off and see the world with new eyes. My bio: Nathan McGovern is Associate Professor of Asian Religions at UW-Whitewater. He has lived in five countries and specializes in the study of Buddhism in India and Thailand. He is the author of The Snake of the Mongoose, a book on the origins of Buddhism and Hinduism.
