Global Christianity

HIST 265
Fall 2009
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: RELI 333
Certificates: International Relations

Christianity is now the religion of 1.6 billion people, stronger in southern countries than in its long-time homeland of Europe. This course investigates the ways Christianity shaped, and was shaped by, contact with different world cultures and the ways the globalization of Christianity interacted with other global phenomena like imperialism, nationalism, and modernization. The focus will be on Catholicism and Protestantism in Asia and Africa, but students interested in other branches of Christianity, or other areas of the world, will be encouraged to write papers on the area of their interest.

Essential Capabilities: Writing
The course emphasizes expository writing. The instructor, and probably a teaching assistant, will work with students who desire help as they shape their arguments and write their first drafts.
