AMST 303E. Religion and American Politics and Campaigns

We will survey the interaction between religions and political life in the United States, beginning with the colonial period and moving forward into the present. Part of our time will be spent examining the role of religion in politics and campaigns throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. During the days and weeks surrounding the Republican primaries, we will spend much of our time discussing the role of religion in the current presidential election cycle. We will use readings and media such as television, film, and the Internet to gain a fuller and clearer understanding of religion and modern campaigns.
