a brief introduction:
We have been colleagues at the University of Lethbridge for almost all of our academic careers. We both studied for our doctorate at McMaster University, with Robinson majoring in Western Religions and Rodrigues in Eastern Religious, though McMaster required that we do a minor in the other area too. We have team-taught the World Religions courses for a number of years and have committed ourselves to producing useful resources for our classes, attractive, rich in content, and jargon-free. Part of our work has been the writing of a World Religions introductory textbook as well as a World Religions Reader, along with extensive resources for instructors. We have also worked to promote Religious Studies as an academic discipline.
