dc.description.abstractReligion (however difficult it may be to define) is obviously an important social force in the 21st century, but the academic study of religion continues to be relatively absent from mainstream American college campuses, relative to, say, the study of economics and politics. This workshop will explore the problems and promises of academic religious studies from a comparative and cross-cultural perspective. The presentation of this perspective will be followed by discussion, small group exercise, and concluding recommendations. Consider Durkheim’s argument that religion is the soul of society, in light of the 21st century global system today; and explore how religion is thoroughly entangled with government and business, and what this implies for the future of human diversity.
