Prompt for module 4 discussion:

Prompt for Module 4 Discussion:

Argue for or against: Buddhism was not compatible with the emerging imperial state.

General reminders:

  • There will be a prompt for each module’s discussion thread.
  • If there is an “argue for or against” kind of prompt, there should be evidence for either side of the debate in the course materials.
  • The format you use in your response will be relatively open: you can write a paragraph or two; you can write an outline or bullet point list; you can make and post a response video; you can use graphic images…if you have other ideas about format, just let me know.
  • However, you must address the prompt and demonstrate engagement with course materials (by quoting, for example), and your third essay assignment will be to develop one of your discussion posts into a full essay.
  • Cite your sources using Chicago style notes & bib (Links to an external site.).
  • I encourage you to engage with your peers through replies, but this is not a requirement.
  • I and/or Christina will read everyone’s posts and will make comments when we can, but we probably won’t be able to make comments each time on everyone’s posts.
