I am an instructor at Macalester College, in the religious studies department. My classes tend to come in four basic flavors:

  1. Buddhism (a ‘traditional’ focus)
  2. Cambodian and Southeast Asia (a ‘regional’ focus)
  3. Explorations of concepts in Religious Studies and Anthropology (a ‘disciplinary’ focus)
  4. Introductory classes (‘Asian Religions)
