Religious Studies 2500

Topics: Religion and Literature

Instructor: Tammy Heise
Delivery Method: Traditional In-Person
Times: TR 9:00a - 10:50a

Religion and Literature will focus on depictions of the supernatural in literature to assess the strength and power of religious paradigms in (mostly) American culture. By examining a variety of literary genres that oscillate between spirit and matter as well as religious "orthodoxy" and scientific modernism, this class will explore how literature functions as a space to explore, affirm and challenge religious truth claims that have haunted and, in some cases, continues to haunt the national imagination.
