Graduate Seminars

FALL & WINTER 2022-2023 (1.0 credit)

FALL 2022 (0.5 credit)

ALDS 5607 F Research and Theory in Academic Writing, Natalie Artemeva

CLMD 6104 F/FILM 5002 F/ DIGH 5902 F Digital Humanities, Media & Social Justice, Laura Horack (comes with film screening DIGH 5902 FF)

RELI 4850/5850X – Religious Apocalypses Compared, Christopher Jensen, Timothy James Pettipiece. Team-taught, the course provides students with the theoretical toolkit necessary to propose and perform comparative analyses of “religious apocalypses” (defined broadly). While the initial weeks of the course will cover some historical examples the last few weeks will look at the apocalyptic worldview of groups like QANON (which developed and spread largely through digital information ecosystems). Student projects could thus focus on a DH-adjacent topic, use DH methods, or both.

RELI 4741A Issues in the Study of Religion, Deidre Butler. (nb this course does not directly deal with DH themes, but can be amenable to a DH approach to the material and assessment. Contact the professor before enrolling.) This is a 4th year course; consult with your home department to determine if it may be permitted.
