ANTHR 6471 - Race and Religion

(crosslisted) JWST 6471 
     
Fall. 4 credits. Student option grading.

Co-meets with ANTHR 3471 /JWST 3471 .

N. Tamarkin.

This course considers race and religion as critical sites of lived experience and anthropological analysis with implications for how we approach difference and belonging, violence and inequality, and historical and contemporary forms of power. How does race matter when thinking about religion, how does religion matter when thinking about race, and how can we think race and religion together? In aiming to think race and religion together, this course does not take either term for granted. Rather, it considers racialization of religion and other racial-religious articulations as open questions. Topics include Jews and otherness; colonial convergences of race and religion; and religion, race, and place.
