UTM Abroad Academic Experiences: Hong Kong

This course will consider general concepts of religion and death in relation to the specific and very diverse religious life of Hong Kong. This will include some discussion of traditions such as Buddhism, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, and Taoism. It will also include discussion of Hong Kong traditions not necessarily tied to specific religions. One of our main questions will be to consider how a particular location impacts various beliefs and practices. In this case, that means asking “How and why is religion and death in Hong Kong not like religion and death in other places?”
