New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2019

REL 19.33 Religion, Politics, and Secularism

Is it necessary to keep religion out of politics? Why do religious communities continue to be influential in the public sphere? Is secularism the best response to religion’s role in politics? This course will examine these questions through a study of religion and political secularism in the Middle East, Europe, and the United States. We will take an inter-religious and comparative perspective to examine how and why religions impact political sovereignty, societies, and justice.

Distributive and/or World Culture


The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
