RELG 4450 - Visions of the Apocalypse

The course will introduce apocalypticism in Western religious traditions, but will soon focus on the United States in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Explorations will take us from slave revolts to UFO cults to Dr. Strangelove, from Edward Bellamy to genetic engineering, from the space program to Left Behind, and from the Great Disappointment of the 1840s and the Ghost Dance of 1890 to the New Age of the present.
