This course is intended to acquaint you with some of the major themes in American religion from the perspective of actors/subjects who are traditionally underrepresented in the study of religious history. Our goal is to explore the relationships between religion and society by considering the interaction of its various participants -including women, ethnic and racial minorities, and religious “outsiders” -in shaping American culture.
This syllabus was created for the Young Scholars in American Religion program.
