REL 370 - Religion & Popular Culture

Description
This course starts with the position that "religion" cannot be neatly confined to "beliefs," "institutions," or "worship," but rather that "religion" is an expansive concept that can be found in many unexpected places. One such place is the realm of popular culture. Students in this course will explore and analyze the ways that movies, television, sports, novels, and other types of popular culture can shape, cultivate, interact with, and even serve as religion. Among other things, students can expect to encounter Marvel movies, Oprah, bronies, and college football in the course content.
