PPR391a: Religions in the Modern World
Tutor: Professor Christopher Partridge
This module is based around weekly seminars, the aim of which is to give students the opportunity to study trends in the manifestation of religion in the modern world, from secularization to fundamentalism and from Christianity and Islam to the New Age and Paganism. Please note that these are meant to be friendly discussion groups, for which students are expected to come prepared and contribute. While the tutor convenes the group and suggests readings, there are no lectures. Each student takes his or her turn to provide a short presentation to the seminar, which then forms the basis for that week’s discussion. Assessment consists of one 5,000-word mini-dissertation on a topic of the student’s choice, in consultation with the tutor.
On successful completion of this module students will be able to:
100% coursework: 5,000 word mini-dissertation.
One seminar (2 hours) weekly.
