Conversion: Patterns of Individual and Cultural Transformation
RELI 477
Fall 2010
Section: 01  

This course examines conversion as an individual, social and cultured process involving a change from one system of beliefs and behaviors to another. We will evaluate social scientific approaches to the phenomenon of conversion, and examine and compare examples drawn from history and the contemporary world. Readings will focus on the conditions and outcomes of conversion processes, the missionary/convert relationship and the contexts of cultural interaction in which conversion succeeds or fails.
