INDIAN CIVILIZATION: LOOKING AHEAD (Week 6)
We will be moving into an intensive section of the course in which you will be completing three of the semester's seminar notes plus one other assignment within the next five weeks. You also will be responsible for a reduced Second-Half Note-Taking Assignment.
A few of you moved somewhat to the margins of the course in the last couple of weeks before the Reading Break. You will need to regularly devote several hours of study a week to LIB 210 and to participate in each of our seminar discussions to succeed academically. You should also plan ahead and have a good sense of the outline of the curriculum for the second half of the semester
The Rig Veda, Karen Armstrong's biography of Buddha, and the Autobiography of Mahatma Gandhi are the three required books that will be at the heart of the second-half curriculum. You should have each of these now. These books are also available in e-text editions (Rig Veda -- Kindle, $11; the Buddha -- A Download Is Available Here; Autobiography Of Mahatma Gandhi -- Kindle, $1). There are also a number of copies of Armstrong's Buddha on reserve in the NIC Library and a copy or two apiece of the Rig Veda and Gandhi's Autobiography.
You should now have applied for and received free library privileges from the Vancouver Island Regional Library so that you can access second-half lecture materials. Information about ordering a library card can be found HERE.
