Religion and Pop Culture

( cr.) - Session(s): | Course

This course explores the intersection of religion and pop culture, focusing on religion in pop culture and pop culture as religion.  The relationship between religion and culture is explored through a variety of theoretical lenses with examples being drawn from American pop culture (TV, music, internet, and film).  Students will be challenged to read popular culture “texts” through a critical lens that takes into account issues such as ideology, Americanization, and racial, gendered, and sexual identities.
