Religious Studies and Religious Studies Teaching 4
7.5 ECTS credits
The course addresses themes such as how language and reality are related, how people speak about religion and religious experiences, and how language enables and shapes what can be said about divinity and 'the holy'. The course deals with obstacles and boundaries for how language can be used in relation to what is holy through analysing religious humour, critique of religion, how legislation is formulated in different cultural contexts, and the characteristics of religious language in secular and commercial contexts.
