RELG 380B - Religions And Social Policy

Binghamton / University Center | Summer 2019
May 28, 2019 — 
This course will explore Religions and cosmologies from a cross-cultural lens and in relations to politics of various nations. It will explore the influence on and effect of social policies on religious groups in various countries or nations. They may have built their government around the foundation of beliefs of a particular religion; they may have built it with the hope to reject religion and embrace secularism. Not all the influences are obvious because it is not always the open policy of the government itself. However, individuals in government are also influenced by their cosmological beliefs, which in turn help shape their stances on social policies. The primary case studies we are looking at are in the USA. We will address immigrant groups such as Arabs, and religious minority groups, Apache, Jews, Muslims and the Amish. We will also look at Chinese immigrants and their interaction and cultural influence on American Ashkenazi Jewish culture.

HIS 161LR - United States History I

Buffalo, University at / University Center | Summer 2019
May 28, 2019 — 
This is not your high school history class. We won't ignore presidents and generals but we will also push beyond them to look at ordinary people, popular culture, and the unexpected ideas that shaped American history from Native American settlement to the aftermath of the Civil War. We will pay particular attention to the interaction among Europeans Africans and the Native Peoples of the New World. We will also explore historical methodologies, practice critical thinking, and discuss how this history has shaped the country we know today. We will use film, music, and compelling stories to show that history is not just a list of names and dates; it is a gripping drama of individuals and groups from foot soldiers to farmers striving to create a new nation.
