Theology and Human Culture
- Course Dates: Mon 8 October 2018, 2:00 pm to Thu 11 October 2018, 2:00 pm
Engage with the ‘texts’ and practices of human culture and explore the nature of the relationship between theology and culture through creative and critical perspectives.
Students will be given the opportunity to refine and update their knowledge of theologians and key theological debates as they relate to human culture, show how central themes in theology are expressed through different forms of culture in history and today, and be given the opportunity to critically reflect on human culture through a variety of interdisciplinary perspectives.
Students will be introduced to the interface between the divine and human culture and become familiar with the distinct methodological approaches taken within the sociological, philosophical, and theological studies of culture.
Students will attend to the interdisciplinary nature of the study of culture from the 17th century to the present day and as such gain an appreciation of the creative interactions between different ways of understanding culture.
Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
