American Religions (LHS3011/4011)

Professor: Sheryl Kujawa-Holbrook
June 4-15
8:30-12:30 Monday-Friday in Craig 103 (CST Campus)

This course introduces students to the history of American religions from First Peoples to the present, including theological themes, religious movements, key texts, spiritual practices and local religious life. Reading in primary texts is required. Traditions studied may include First Peoples, Christianities, Judaism, Buddhism, Islam, and Hinduism and religions of/from the United States. The course will assume that the history of religions in North America is not merely a collection of facts or famous persons but an opportunity to enter into conversations with religious pluralism and interreligious engagement. As living traditions, American religions are undergoing constant change; as religious cultures, American religions are adaptive to local contexts. Students should contact instructor in advance for syllabus and/or advance assignments. All are welcome, though students who do some advance reading will be at an advantage.
3 or 4 Semester Units (Permission of Instructor required for Master students wishing to register for 4 units).
All assignments due on Friday July 6, 2012

Professor: Richard Amesbury

What public role if any, should religion play in a liberal democracy like the United States? Is it possible to be both a committed religious believer and a good citizen? This course examines differing conceptions of the appropriate place of religion in the public sphere and the relation between religion and liberal democracy, with special reference to the U.S.

Encountering the Other from a Christian Perspective (LIR3004/4004)

Professor: Sheryl Kujawa-Holbrook
July 9-20
1:30-5:30 Monday-Friday in Craig 110 (CST Campus)

This seminar will focus on Christian responses to religious pluralism from the perspective of Christian theologies and the practice of interreligious dialogue and education in Christian contexts. While the class will focus on “the Other” from the perspective of religious differences, it is also built on the assumption that all social identities (e.g. race, class, gender, language, sexual identities) are interrelated. Reading will focus on a range of approaches and traditions within Christianities, as well as how these perspectives are viewed by those from other traditions. Resources from within the Christian tradition to sustain interreligious engagement will be a focus, as will how various theologies relate to religious pluralism and spiritual formation. Students from all religious and philosophical traditions interested in dialogue and collegiality are welcome. Students are urged to obtain a syllabus and do some course work in advance.
3 or 4 Semester Units (Permission of Instructor required for Master students wishing to register for 4 units).
All assignments due on Friday August 10, 2012
