Pilgrimage and Religious Tourism
T 1:30 - 3:20pm
This interdisciplinary graduate seminar explores the subjects of pilgrimage and religious tourism. With a few notable exceptions, case studies in class sessions focus on diverse Christianities across time. Students are encouraged to select presentation topics across a broad range of religions, times, and spaces. Theoretical and methodological reading assignments reflect this larger content.
No specific prerequisites though students will be expected to be able to articulate at least one aspect of their own training and/or professional interest that is relevant to the interdisciplinary content at hand.
