SOCY 49.13 Science and Religion in American Media

The public life of science and religion seems to be characterized by intractable conflict.  In this course we examine case studies from current controversies over stem cell research, reproductive genetics, environmental policy, human origins, and sexuality.  We will explore who is creating and maintaining these public controversies and why.  We will examine “science and religion” as a defining confrontation in the development of American democracy, and consider how the American public sphere shapes possibilities for political participation.

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.
