REL 340 - Sex and Religion

3 Credits

Students investigate the intersection of religious beliefs/practice and cultural constructions of gender/sex/sexuality, with a special focus on how new theoretical approaches in the fields of gender/sexuality and religious studies might help better understand the intersection of these two important aspects of modern culture. Students put these theories to work in their own readings of sources through special “Theory in Practice” class sessions.
Prerequisites: Any GWS course or one of the following courses: SOC 236  , SOC 234  , HIS 209  , HIS 260  , or NAS 215  .
