RLST147 HM - World Religions and Transnational Religions: American and Global Movements

Credit(s): 3

Instructor(s): Dyson

Description: What happens to religious practices and communities when they are transplanted to new terrain? Examples include the establishment of “old world” religious enclaves in the United States, New Age adoptions of “foreign” practices, American understandings of world religions, or the exportation of American or Americanized religion to other countries through missionaries, media, or returning immigrants. Considering exchange, conflict, adaptation, and innovation as multi-directional, and always historically and politically informed, the course looks at several historic and contemporary instances of religious border crossings.
