About the Theology and Human Culture (2021) course
This module will introduce students to the relationship between theology and culture, as we consider how culture impacts theology, and how theological ideas and themes can be found in culture (for instance in works of visual art).
Students will become familiar with the different ways in which this relationship between theology and culture is approached, and will learn about influential theologians and questions that have sparked debate within this area.
We will also have the opportunity to explore how theological themes have been explored in the creative arts, and how the creative arts can themselves be ways of doing theology.
