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.



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.
