RLSC 736 - Religious Identity and Social Action

3 credits
The diasporic experience of certain communities refigures their religious, ethnic, racial, cultural, and political identifications. This course investigates the role of religious identity and mobilization in the formation of diasporic communities and their frequent experiences of invisibility, inequality, and environmental racism. It examines religion and the construction of communal belonging with case studies including two afro-diasporic communities, Spiritual Baptists in Toronto, Canada, Garifuñas/Black Caribs in NYC, and the Israeli/Palestine conflict.
