Courses: Religion, Emotion, and Global Cinema (RELGH325B01)

Spring 2013

Are emotions the raw materials of religion? Do our emotions & our modalities of being religious change across cultures or in history? How has globalization transformed the way religion feels to us, and can we see this transformation expressed in globalized images? This course examines theoretical work on religion and emotion to illuminate these questions, taking global cinema--films produced in the global age that image the interconnectivity of religious bodies--as a case study.
