Catalog Description : This course represents an exploration of a topic in religious studies. Topics will emphasize contemporary questions and experiential learning. Assignments will emphasize experiential learning and discussion. May be repeated when topic is different.

Topic for Winter 2021: Cosmopolitanism
This course will begin with the book of that title by Kwame Anthony Appiah and proceed to examine a set of novels by Nobel prize winner Olga Tokarczuk, Amitav Ghosh, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, and Pico Iyer. These writers ask us to imagine changes to human meaning and personal identity as characters cross national and religious boundaries. They present the Self at times in secular terms and at other times through the remnants of religious tradition. In the midst of a global pandemic that has limited international travel, this class asks students to think creatively about global citizenship and connection. Students will develop a project related to a global city as we test the extent to which online platforms serve as a stand in for physical travel.
