RLST177 PO - Gender and Religion

When Offered: Last offered fall 2019.
Instructor(s): E. Runions
Credit: 1

This course examines the complicated intersections of gender and religion. Neither gender, nor religion are straightforward categories, as the literatures on each attests and must be theorized as categories with particular histories and cultural contexts. This course will look at the ways in which “gender” and “religion” interact with various historical and cultural contexts to reinforce, contradict and also resist traditional notions of gender and religious experience. Attention will be paid to how religion affects experiences of gender; and how gender affects experiences of religion. More specifically, we will explore the way in which the intersection of gender and religion affects understandings, experiences and negotiations of religious origins, personal identities, religious experiences, agency, body shapes, images and disciplines, sexuality, race relations, cultural appropriations and power structures.
