|ANTH 235 - RELIGION: CROSS-CULTURAL PERSPECTIVE|
This course will introduce students to the concept of religion as a phenomenon that exists cross culturally. The course will survey the major anthropological theories in the study of religion, and students will be asked to apply these theories by conducting a short ethnographic research project on a local religious practice. Students will learn about a wide range of religious practices, including those associated with major world religions as well as shamanism, magic, and witchcraft. The course will also focus on the political dimensions of religion in the contemporary world, including an examination of progressive and fundamentalist movements.
