FYSP 167 - Writing Religion and Gender

FC ARHU CD WINT
4 credits
This course invites students to consider the religious lives of women (including trans* women) from Muslim, Hindu, Christian, and Vodou communities in the United States and internationally. Focusing on scholarly writing and film produced by and about contemporary women from these communities we will explore how women construct their religious identities and negotiate religious authority as public leaders, ritual experts, and healers. From our vantage point at the intersection of religion, anthropology, and gender studies we will explore methodology and ethics, including how to represent the ‘other’ and the ‘self’ as researchers. Field trip required. 
Does this course require off campus field trips? Yes
