Religion and Culture Working Group

The Religion and Culture Working Group, funded by the Glasscock Center for Humanities Research, promotes discussion among faculty and students interested in interdisciplinary investigations of the subject of religion both past and present. The group adopts broad-based theoretical approaches to the study of religion, understood in this context to include the material culture, modes of expression, philosophy, institutions, and experiences that are infused with spiritual or transcendent meaning. For more information or to join the Working Group, contact one of the group conveners: Daniel Schwartz, Department of History or Heidi Campbell, Department of Communication.
