Theology and Human Culture
- Course Dates: Mon 12 October 2020, 2:00 pm to Thu 15 October 2020, 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.
This postgraduate module is open (limit of 5 places) to those not on the degree programme, who are welcome to participate as an auditor (what does this mean?)
