Title: Sacred Places
Description: The subject of sacred places is a relatively new frontier for scientific and scholarly investigation and documentation. This course explores the fascinating and important world of sacred places and landscapes through emphasizing the anthropological perspective encompassing holism, culture, cross-cultural comparison, and ethnographic fieldwork. In addition, this course explores sacred places in “nature” with special attention to their relevance for environmental and biodiversity conservation as well as for cultural and religious identity and practice, pilgrimage, tourism, cultural resource management, human rights such as religious freedom, and related matters. The instructor will also discuss some of his own research and publications on sacred places in Thailand and elsewhere. (As background see the June 2012 Praeger book Spiritual Ecology: A Quiet Revolution
