Welcome to the website for REL 502 Public Humanities & Religious Studies: Foundations.
This course is a foundations course required of all first-year students in the Master’s in Religion in Culture degree program in the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Alabama. In this course, students are introduced to a number of digital tools for research and the presentation of their research to a larger public. The course also explores what a public religious studies might look like.
In order to experiment with the various digital tools in the course, we will turn our attention to one object of study through the semester: The American Academy of Religion. All of our four major projects will work to illuminate something about the major academic organization in our field.
