REL 415.001 Religion in the American South

Using the UA campus as its own case study, this course will focus on how notions of “the past” come to be invented in different ways for different social purposes through narrative practice—specifically, memorials and monuments. While some readings will focus on specific religious groups and practices that find their homes in the region, we will emphasize analytical classifications and contestations of “the South” as an identifiable geographical and cultural space.
