HIS5060 offers a selection of casestudies dealing with the two-fold wide-scoped topic of religious conflict and negotiation. The course is conceived as a series of lectures and seminars. Every lecture addresses the theme in a different cultural, chronological and geographical setting, employing specific analytic tools.
Whilst building upon notions, phenomena and terminology already introduced in the first semester of the master's programme, the course brings in new perspectives stemming from recent research. In that sense, HIS5060 makes the transition to the second year of the master's programme.
HIS5060 is an obligatory course in the Master's programme in History of Religions.
In order to receive a final assessment, the student must:
