Forms of Hindu Devotion

Come and explore...

Practiced by roughly one billion people worldwide, Hinduism is one of the world's most complex and vibrant living religions.  As is the case with any ancient religion, there are diverse attitudes towards and understandings of divinity within Hinduism.  This talk will provide a sampling of some of this diversity by focusing on the iconography, narratives and natures of several widely worshipped Hindu deities and how they inform devotional practices.

Dr. Valerie Stoker received her B.A. with Great Distinction from the Religious Studies Faculty of McGill University in Montreal, Quebec.  Her PhD is from the South Asia section of the University of Pennsylvania's Department of Asian and Middle Eastern Studies.  Late medieval and early modern South Indian Hinduism are her principal areas of research.  Dr. Stoker directs the Master of Humanities Program at Wright State University and is Co-Chair of the Religion in South Asia section of the American Academy of Religion.
