Course Description:

“Black+Blue: Religion and Regulation of Bodies of Color” examines the ways religion(s) have been used to police and control American people of color, and how communities of color have used religion to rethink and resist oppression. The course is divided into three sections: Indigenous Americans, native rights, and the current #NoDAPL pipeline protest; Black Americans, African American religion(s), and #BlackLivesMatter; and Immigrant Americans, contextualizing anti-Muslim and anti-Latinx nativism in the recent election cycle. Students read speeches, news articles, twitter feeds, graphic novels, and creative nonfiction to cultivate awareness and understanding of the complex interactions of race, politics, and contemporary American religions. No prior religious studies coursework required.
