Since the mid-20th century, American society has experienced a number of demographic and cultural changes that have challenged conventional understandings of the relationship between politics and religion.
This course examines some of the most vital and contentious issues in American politics: What is the relationship of religion to American democracy? Is the United States a Christian nation, a secular nation, or something else entirely? What exactly do we mean by "separation of church and state"? In what ways has religion shaped the politics of gender and race? Why have faith and science been so often in conflict (or have they?)?
The course meets for six weeks on Wednesdays from 3:30 to 5:30pm, March 21 through April 25. The course is open to the public.
