REL 2 Religion in the Modern World
Ecological concerns, gender, economics, warfare, and biogenetics are among the many important issues in the modern world where policy and practice are decisively shaped by religion. In this course we will first try to understand what we mean by the term “modernity” and what features are characteristic of it. Then we will consider and discuss a series of topics related to modernity and religion. Readings are designed to include both topical cases and classic works in the study of religion and modernity. Open to all classes.
