ENGL 3004 Storytelling and Catholicism (Spring: 1 )
Within the field of religion and literature the newer field of Catholic Studies has emerged, to pay close attention both to varieties of Catholic experience and to how the world at large experiences, or imagines, the Catholic. We’ll look at four short stories suggesting a multicultural dimension to the Catholic, and read two novels, A Flag for Sunrise, featuring Americans experiencing the political intrigue and spiritual intensity of Central America in the 1980’s, and Pearl, following the journey of an American into the still tense Ireland of the 2000’s. A final assignment is on a self-chosen film about the Catholic.
