DWA 310 Junior Seminar: Religion and Politics

As of late, religion has re-emerged on the political stage, offering different perspectives regarding political norms, values, and behavior. In this course, we will explore the various ways in which religion has been conceptualized and utilized in different political and cultural settings. Some of the questions that we will seek to answer are: in what ways can religion be separated from politics? What are the roles of religion and religious institutions in political life? How do religions and religious institutions respond to the challenges of a pluralist and secular modern world? Open only to DWA majors with junior or senior standing.
