SOC 395-01 - Advanced Special Topic: Christian Nationalism

4 credits (Spring)
This class will investigate the global rise of right wing populist movements, the history of fundamentalisms, and the intersection between religion and politics - both personal and public. To do so, we will interrogate the rise of Christian Nationalism in the United States, through the lens of the sociology of religion. We will piece together the role of the “deep story,” globalization, rationalization, and authoritarianism, gender, race/whiteness, aggrieved entitlement, and other conceptual tools. 

Prerequisite: SOC 111  and one 200-level SOC course.
Note: Plus-2 option available.
Instructor: Snook
