Religion and Film
RELI 278
Spring 2009 not offered

This course exams how films, like religious texts and practices, carry and shape political ideologies and forge and express cultural mythologies. It investigates how films, like religion itself, construct and perpetuate social structures, gender and social identities, religious beliefs, and cultural values. The range of films considered includes popular and independent productions, some of which consciously depict religious cultures, while others implicitly communicate religious themes.
