This course uses films from the 1940s-2010s to examine the changing religious dynamics of modern American society. It uses the conceptual tools of religious studies to describe Americans' changing relationships to cinema. The assigned films cover a range of genres and offer many interpretive possibilities. This is an online course designed for summer instruction. All meetings will take place online using Blackboard Elluminate.
