Course Description
Course investigates the supernatural from a rational point of view. Topics include Witchcraft, Qigong, Falungong, Divination etc. 
Assessment
1. Course and Tutorial Participation (30%)
The grade will be based on your preparation and contribution to discussion.
2. Quizes (10%):
Two quizzes will be administered randomly during the semester. This is merely to check your comprehension of the course content and assigned readings.
3. Memo (10%):
For two chosen weeks during the semester, you need to write a memo (around 250 words) that evaluates the reading(s)—The TA will ask you to sign up for two specific weeks later. The memo can cover one or more than one of the readings in that week. In this short piece you need to raise a question suitable for discussion and develop your thoughts around it. This exercise will begin from the third week (Jan 22). These memos have to be posted on Blackboard—and therefore can be read by your classmates—by 11 am on the day of the lecture.
4. Final exam or paper (50%):
You have two options:
(1) Take-home final exam: This will be conducted in the format of essays in response to the questions that will be handed out in the last lecture
(2) paper: You need to choose a topic of your interest (and of course, it has to be related to the course) and conduct research in which there is a significant fieldwork component (for example, interview or participant observation). The length of the paper should be around 2500 words (excluding references).
