This course focuses on how religious traditions encourage, contest, facilitate, disrupt, or otherwise influence political and social change. You’ll learn about the importance of religions to phenomena such as social movements, revolutions, terrorism, global development, gender, sexuality and race discrimination, migration and diaspora. You’ll also critically interrogate the concept of ‘religion’ in the context of different theories of politics, policy and social change, engaging with hotly debated and contested topics such secularisation and ‘post-secularism’, religious identity and representation, religion and the public sphere.
