2010 Fall - RELIGION
Subj Cat# Class# Sect Course
RELIGION 416HC 1271 1 Religion in America, 1865-present
This course will introduce students to some of the most important and innovative recent scholarly work examining the significance and shape of religion in the modern United States. One of the hallmarks of American religion has been its sheer variety; accordingly, course readings seek to capture something of the impressive pluralism characteristic of American spirituality in the past century and a half, though complete coverage of all significant groups and themes will be impossible in only one semester. It will consider American religious history within its broader cultural, political, and intellectual context. This course is required for all students majoring in Religions of North America, but is open to any interested students and will be particularly helpful for those interested in American history and culture and/or religion in the modern West.
