PPR357: Religion and Politics
This course focuses on key contexts and developments in the inter-relationship between religion and politics across the world. The major themes will be: (i) the thesis that the influence of religion has declined in the western world, and its applicability to Christianity in the U.S.A; (ii) the thesis that there has been a resurgence of religion in politics in the world, and its relevance to the interpretation of politics in selected Islamic states (with special reference to Judaism and the Middle-East); (iii) constitutional attempts to negotiate the role of religion in a multi-religious polity, with special reference to Hinduism and Indian secularism; (iv) the management of religion through the concept of a state religion, through a comparison of the monarchies of the United Kingdom, Thailand and Japan.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
40% coursework and 60% exam.
Lecture (2 hours) weekly, and seminar (1 hour) fortnightly.
