Traditional Religions

Additional materials will be posted here when the course is taught. Traditional Religions studies in detail those religions, usually of tribal peoples, which have also been called "animistic."

Tempted to cheat on some schoolwork?
Before you do, read SNU's academic integrity policy

I have a very personal interest in this subject since we spent one term of service in Haiti, where the predominant religion is an animistic one, voodoo (also spelled "voudun"). [ e-book on Haiti ]

Most courses at SNU contain a writing component.
I expect students to produce written work that is focused, well developed, organized and relatively free of grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors.
Papers falling short of this standard will not be graded. That work will be returned to the students for further revision and resubmission.
See my writing checklist.
