Religion, Secularism, and Power Syllabus

What forms does religion take in the modern world—and in the U.S. in particular? Do we live in a secular age? How do we understand the relationship between religion and secularism? And how do genealogies of secularism shape the politics of ‘religious freedom’? This seminar examines the growing field of secularism studies and postsecular critique, including its intersections with religious studies, anthropology, feminist and queer studies, and critical race theory. We will pay special attention to histories of religious freedom, secularism, and politics in the U.S.0
