The subject matter of this course is incredibly broad, and it is designed to give you a basic understanding of many facets of Chinese popular religion. Thus, the final project for this class will enable you to explore one aspect of one type of Chinese religiosity in depth. In week four, you must submit a 2-3 page paper proposal in which you identify (1) a specific religious practice within a specific tradition that interests you, (2) a debatable research question about the significance, meaning, effects, etc of this practice, and (3) at least three scholarly sources NOT assigned for this course that will help to answer your question. You must explain how you will use sources to answer your question, and how this will enrich scholarly understanding of Chinese popular religion and the anthropological meaning/ function of religion in general. You are encouraged to consult with the professor about this project before and after turning in the assignment (this is why we have office hours).
Final Paper 30%
You will write a 9-10 page paper that answers a question of your choosing by integrating data from scholarly, anthropological sources. The question will be a refined version of the one featured in your paper proposal and must be approved in advance by the professor, either in comments on your proposal or in later consultation. This paper should use academic evidence to support a debatable argument related to the issues addressed in the course, but it does not have to be a topic specifically included on the syllabus.. (We lack of the Question and the little answer on how we will answer that question please work on it asap so I can ask him)
Also, the paper show reflects all the perspectives of Confucism, Buddhism,Daoism/Taoism, or Philosophy/ Anthropology that relate to Chinese and how they influence on Chinese culture. Can you give me the outline, it would be better. each part can you have a question and a little answer ? so I can print out and ask him.
