Studies in Material Religion
Sally Promey
M 3.30-5.20 LORIA 258
Spring 2016 
 
This course will invite students to engage a set of ideas about materiality emerging in disciplines as far ranging as political science, cultural anthropology, law, ethics, history of art, cognitive science, religious studies, and gender and sexuality studies. A key aim of the course is to provide a basic set of tools and body of knowledge about the shape of material religion studies. In the second half of the semester, research projects will focus attention on specific objects or material media in relation to their historical, theoretical, political, social, and embodied practical lives.
