About this Unit
This unit focuses on the relationship between religion and culture and considers the role of religion as elemental to forces of cultural change. Various religions are studied with a view to investigating how culture shapes religion and in turn how religion shapes and moulds culture. Topics include the rise of fundamentalism, the relationship between gender and religion, religion and violence, religion and ethics, the relationship between science and religion, the rise of new forms of spirituality including New Age, and the role of religion in popular culture.
