Week 9 Virtual Section Discussion Board
My dear friends, happy Monday 🙂
I hope you had a wonderful holiday break. I am very grateful to you for all your hard work and very proud of all of you.
This week, we have only one discussion board, and we will be focusing on analyzing our readings for Week 9.
Drawing and citing specifically from this weeks readings:
1. Why do some rebels and bandits become heroes? How do we reconcile the wisdom traditions and the political and religious institutions rooted in these traditions with this context? Please build your analysis on at least two specific cases from this weeks content. (up to 250 words)
2. Please offer a comparative analysis of two specific cases of gender inequality and disempowerment and responses against them from two different traditions. How do these traditions justify gender hierarchies, and how are they challenged and criticized in our primary sources for this week? (up to 250 words)
3. Reflecting back on your first two answers, how might these perspectives on equality and justice impact how we can use these traditions to address contemporary issues? (up to 200 words)
4. The final exam will have two questions. One is a reflection on the content from 8-10. The other is a summative question on content from weeks 1-7. In your view, what questions should the professor ask?
Once you post your responses, please use the 3C+Q model to comment on one other post and only to one of their answers (to either Question #1 or Question #2).
Love you all!
