Rel 198-10 (AAS 198-10) The Rise and Fall of Religion and Meaning in Youth (Sub)Cultures (4)

This course explores various ways in which the categories and contexts of 'religion' and 'youth (sub)culture' have been configured and engaged across a variety of fields as elements of urban environments.  We examine how these categories are constructed through various lenses including social order and change, delinquency, ethics, appropriation, and the construction of personal and social meaning.  Drawing on sociology, and anthropology, cultural studies, and political science, particular attention will be paid to the interactions of youth culture, society and the institutions, beliefs, rituals and practices of recognized and under-represented religious sensibilities in youth (sub)cultural practices.  (HU)
