An Introduction to Modern Hinduism

In this course we will explore the ways in which modern teachers such as Vivekananda, Dayananda Saraswati and Swaminarayan made use of traditional Hindu ideas in order to present interpretations of the religion that addressed the concerns of the modern world.

We will also consider the ways in which Hinduism contributes to debates on contemporary issues and the forms of Hindu dharma that have a specific relevance for the modern world.
