SOCL 231 - Sociology of Religion


Credit(s): 3
3 hours lecture, 3 hours contact
This course examines the sociological analysis of religion’s relation to politics and the state, at home and abroad. With the War on Terrorism, the fate of Afghanistan and Iraq, and the religious conflicts raging in places like India, Israel, Northern Ireland or the former Soviet Union, there are critical issues that need to be addressed. Religion in its various forms will be subject to myriad interpretations in such contexts as: immigration, globalization, race, religious freedom, tolerance, democratization and gender politics.
