CLWR 2220 - Difficult Dialogues: Religion, Gender and Sexuality


One of two Difficult Dialogues courses offered to encourage thoughtful and productive discussion of historically contentious topics. Promotes dialogue on conflicts made divisive because of significant differences involving religious beliefs and assumptions about gender and sexuality such as how religious experience is gendered, what scriptures in different traditions say about women, and how religious traditions have changed in the way women and their role in society are viewed. Emphasizes the search for understanding of others whose beliefs are rooted in different religious or secular humanist traditions. Students are asked to engage in disciplined, self-critical thinking. Draws on methods and content from intellectual and religious history, the philosophy of religions, and contemporary religious dialogue.
