HIST024 PO - Race and American Religion in Global Perspective

When Offered: Each semester.
Instructor(s): S. Reidy
Credit: 1

In this course we will examine the connections between religion in America and transnational diasporas, empires, and missionary networks. We will learn how faith communities construct racial identity, and how spirituality can be used to harden or challenge racial hierarchies. This course examines six religious traditions, three that began overseas and spread to North America, and three that began in the United States and then spread globally. We begin by considering how Spanish Catholicism, English Puritanism, and contemporary Islam encountered the American context, and then analyze the American roots and transnational spread of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, Mormonism, and Pentecostalism. Letter grade only.
