Event Details

Despite living in what appears to be an increasingly secular world, Religion remains one of the most important social forces today. This interdisciplinary short course investigates how religious belief affects politics, culture, education and media, as well as other areas of public life and discourse. 

In this short course we aim to complicate oversimplified representations of religion, as well as exploring religious commonalities.  In addition, we will discuss contentious contemporary topics, such as violence against women in religion, and violence, in general, in the name of religion. 

This is a five week intensive programme in which we will explore questions that have left scholars mystified for centuries. This will be of interest to you if you are concerned about how religious ideas and practices shape the society you live in. Using a sociological framework, we are able to examine evidence and interpretation about how religion is lived today – at home, at work, in government, education, health care, and other important social settings. We will look at the impact of religion on organisations and members of the public.

This is five week short course with no class on 11 July. There will be three hour sessions on 27 June and 4 July in place of the class on 11 July.
