Teaching Interreligious Encounters

Hsiao-Lan Hu

Oxford University Press

East Asians typically do not consider Confucianism, Daoism, and Buddhism in exclusive terms; they are often pluralistic in terms of being Confucian, Daoist, and Buddhist at the same time. As such an East Asian myself, I have drawn much from each of these traditions in my own teaching. Combined with third-wave feminism’s emphasis on diversity, my pluralistic background has driven me to design my teaching to accommodate students of different levels of academic preparedness as well as various intellectual and spiritual leanings. Such pluralism-informed pedagogy works best in courses that deal with multiple religious traditions, such as my “Asian Religions” and “Gender and Religion” courses. Pluralism is best taught when the instructor’s understanding of pluralism is reflected in the pedagogy.

Keywords:   pluralistic pedagogy, East Asian, Confucianism, Daoism, Buddhism, feminism, pluralism
