[RLST 309] Secularism and Fundamentalism


This advanced-level course investigates the mutually constituting relationship between “secularism” and the diverse set of contemporary movements labeled as “fundamentalist” by adherents or critics. Media representations, polemical writings, and campus norms will be analyzed, to both better understand the centrality of these categories in the construction of political, social, and personal realities and to recognize and critique our own assumptions through comparative study.
