RELG 095. Religion Café: Senior Symposium


What is Religion? How is Religion constructed as an academic discipline? Religion 095 is a weekly café for thoughtful reading and discussion of selected texts for senior majors and strongly recommended for minors. The Religion Café highlights approaches to Religious Studies with works that have influenced theoretical and philosophical assumptions and vocabularies in the field. Readings include case studies and multidisciplinary writings on Religion. The course will examine a number of approaches to Religious Studies including, but not limited to, those drawn from: post-structuralism, gender studies, critical race theory, queer theory, cognitive science, phenomenology, ethics, pragmatism, social history, and anthropology, with occasional works by Religion Department faculty members.
