US Religions, US Revolutions


How have religious commitments moved people to work for (or retrench in opposition to) societal change?  This seminar will address this question by examining several episodes in which religious affiliation shaped action: the movements for American independence in the eighteenth century, abolition in the nineteenth century, women's rights in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, and civil rights in the twentieth and twenty-first.
