Jesus and Buddha

In spring 2021, I taught two sections of “Jesus and Buddha” with Elaine Pagels and Jonathan Gold. It was a large undergraduate course cross-listed in Humanistic Studies and the Department of Religion at Princeton University.

This course was conducted online, which gave me the opportunity to further integrate digital humanities approaches into my teaching. My students participated asynchronously and synchronously through a mix of activities, including collaborative document annotation, shared discussion forums, chat-based group work, and small group discussion sessions held online.
