HIST 2828 American Religious History since 1945 (Fall: 3 )

Course Description

This course explores the multiple dimensions – political, cultural, and social – of the role religion played in American life since 1945. We will investigate the role religious subjects played in the Cold War, the Civil Rights Movement, Feminism, Vietnam, and other significant trends. This course will stress the ways religious actors have ended up on both sides of these struggles. This course also investigates religion as a category and discrete set of experiences. It aims to investigate the content of beliefs held by Americans in recent history. It asks "what has been believed?" and "how have these beliefs changed over time?"
