REL 20.01 Classic Works in the Study of Religion

How do we study the evolution and development of religion in society? It was only in the late 19th century that “religion” became an object of academic study with such founders of sociology and cultural anthropology as Sir Edward Tylor, Émile Durkheim, Max Weber, and Mary Douglas, among others. This course invites you to become part of the discussion and to develop your own analysis and writing skills. Through critical readings and class discussions, the course is designed to provide a grounding in the methods and approaches that have created the academic field of “the study of religion."



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.
