Title: Religion in Africa
Course Section Number: REL-272-02
Department: Religion
Description: This class will look at the history of Africa through the lens of religion, especially Christianity. Students will be exposed to key elements of the long history of the African continent and its peoples in a broad sense, before focusing on the religion of its inhabitants, and more closely on the process of religious change and fusion with the introduction of Christianity. The most finite focus will come with our visit to the country of Kenya, where students will be immersed in Christian, especially Catholic culture in that country. As with the course in general, other African religious traditions will be studied, including Islam and traditional, "animistic" belief systems. In the second half of the semester students will produce a significant piece of research on a topic of their choosing related to the course theme. THIS IS AN IMMERSION COURSE. Admission by application only. STUDENTS MUST BE FULLY VACCINATED TO PARTICIPATE IN THE IMMERSION COMPONENT OF THIS COURSE.
