Theology of Popular Culture
RELI 498
Spring 2008 not offered

This course will explore various theological and religious meanings that are carried in popular culture and specifically in phenomena that are not ordinarily thought of as religious. Through reading several "theologians of culture," we will examine contemporary novels, films, music, television, and tourism with the intent of developing ways to discern transcendent longings, anxieties, and visions of good and evil that operate below the surface of our common cultural life in the United States.
