RELG 005. World Religions
This introductory course supplies students with the religious literacy skills necessary to think and write critically and comparatively about the world’s religions. It will challenge the “world religion” paradigm in both its form and content while engaging students through the study of diverse traditions. Organized thematically with a focus on “lived religion,” we will explore different topics such as food, architecture, performance, and art through a combination of theoretical pieces and case studies. We will also make use of a variety of media resources including film, podcasts, and music.
