REL 29.02 Is God Back? Religion in Modern Europe

If God is not back, religion most certainly is. Religion arguably never went away in the USA, however the re-emergence of public religion is a European phenomenon. What does this re-emergence of religion mean? This course will explore how religion is contested and renegotiated in the public sphere, and the effects of these struggles on society, state, and religion itself. In discussing a broad range of empirical issues—such as the impacts of migration, national identity, religion and media, church-state relationships, and religion and welfare, the course puts a strong emphasis on situating European developments in a global context.

Degree Requirement Attributes


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.
