INTD 105: WS:Durkheim on Religion&Ritual
Writing Seminar is a course focusing on a specific topic while emphasizing writing practice and instruction, potentially taught by any member of the College faculty. Because this is primarily a course
in writing, reading assignments will be briefer than in traditional topic courses, and students will prove their understanding of the subject matter through writing compositions rather than taking examinations.
This course examines the relationship between religion and society. Topics include theoretical explorations into nature, origins, and functions of religion; interpretations of the place of religion an
d ritual in social life; analyses of interaction between religion and other institutions of society, especially economics and politics; and examination of religious change, conflicts over religion, and social movements that have religious bases. Offered every year
