Summer Course - India 2015
During the summer semester in 2015, Dr. Anne Vallely once again taught her oversea course in India to students from the University of Ottawa. The course also accepted a small number of students from other universities across Canada. The course focuses on the religious and cultural tradition of Jainism and provides students - from both undergraduate and graduate programs - the opportunity to participate in cultural and educational immersion in India. The program is affiliated with the University of Mumbai, where students spend a week studying with faculty from the Department of Philosophy, as well as participating in daily excursions to important religious sites in and around the city, including the Buddhist Kanheri caves and the island Elephanta, famous for its 6th century rock carvings of Lord Shiva.
