This course explores religious diversity, pluralism, and the expression of the sacred in contemporary America; in particular, what scholars call “lived religion.” Some of our topics/foci will include: the distinction between religious diversity and religious pluralism; historical and contemporary perspectives on, and responses to, religious diversity and difference in America; inter/intra religious cooperation and confrontation; tensions between religious and secular authorities; and religious/spiritual expression, connection, innovation, and creativity during the Covid-19 pandemic. Our modes of inquiry will include personal narrative/self-reflection, teamwork, a consideration of scholarly material, and a review of current and past news items. After the first week of the semester, permission of the instructor will be required in order to register for this course.
