About this course

In this course, we will explore a series of contemporary conflicts in different regions of the world with a special focus on identifying and analyzing the diverse and complex roles that religions play in both promoting and mitigating violence in each context. Students will learn a method for recognizing and analyzing how religious ideologies are embedded in all arenas of human agency and not isolated from political, economic, and cultural life as is often assumed. 

In addition to examining the conflicts themselves, we will also explore the religious dimensions of the impacts those conflicts have on civic life in areas such as public health, education, and commerce.

What you'll learn

  • Tools for how to interpret the roles religions play in contemporary conflicts.
  • How religions are internally diverse.
  • How religions evolve and change.
  • How religions are embedded in all human cultures.
