ISHU 3060 - Religious Diversity and Assimilation in American Life

This course explores the links (and sometimes conflicts) between American culture and religious life. The nature of religious diversity and pluralism in America and the specific challenges the major religious groups have experienced as they adapted to are examined. Students consider the cultural dilemmas faced by indigenous religious communities, especially the Mormons in the nineteenth century and ‘new religious movements’ or cults, in the twentieth century.
