Religion, Textuality, and Cultural Imagination

Religion, Textuality, and Cultural Imagination

Religion, Textuality, and Cultural Imagination encourages graduate students to interrogate imbrications of the category of religion in and through artifacts expressive of human cultural imagination—including but not limited to narrative, poetry, visual and material arts, music, film, drama, and other modes of performativity. In addition to competence in specific genres of cultural expression, you will master legacies of theoretical and cultural criticism, specialize in at least one region/tradition/methodology in the study of religion (Religion in the Americas, East Asian Religions, Islam, or Ethics, for instance), and complete necessary language requirements.
