RELG 112. Postcolonial Religious Thought


Today we are facing the four horsemen of the apocalypse: climate catastrophe, white nationalism, global poverty, and a raging pandemic. In confronting these dire threats, what is the role of religion? This seminar explores new models for understanding religion -- Indigenous studies, liberation theology, critical plant studies, queer theory -- and a variety of thinkers -- Kierkegaard, Buber, Bonhoeffer, Derrida, Mbembe, Tinker, Kimmerer -- to enable resiliency, even joy, in the face of the coming storm.
