[ANTH 257] Secularism and Fundamentalism
This advanced-level course investigates the mutually constituting relationship between â€œsecularismâ€ and the diverse set of contemporary movements labeled- whether by adherents or critics- as â€œfundamentalist.â€ 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.
