RE292 - James Baldwin & Religion

An introduction to James Baldwin’s literature and his robust engagement of religious themes throughout his literary corpus. Students will explore the autobiographically inspired religious and theological questions which often serve as the foundation for Baldwin’s complex understanding/critique of the socio-political realities of race, sexuality, and gender in the United States. This course also considers the ways in which Baldwin “queers” Christian theological language and symbols in putting forth his own unique post-Christian religious vision. Meets the Equity and Power: EPUS requirement.
