Course title: 
Globalization and Popular Religion
Course Description: 
The overall objective of this course is to reexamine our perception of “religion” by placing it in a theoretical framework called “globalization.” The first half of the course addresses different roles religion plays in the globalized world as it promotes, enhances or resists the globalization process. In the second half, we will focus on the recent global spread of Pentecostalism in particular and examine how this popular religious movement is gaining its momentum because of/in spite of globalization.
