Religion Seminar, Semester 1, 2014

In semester 1, the Religion seminar will again take the form of a reading group (except on 16 May). Rather than discussing a single book, we will read a series of articles, each of which will be introduced by the person who chose it as being of particular significance for their approach to the study of religion. All seminars meet at 1pm in room 4C11 in the Arts Building, and all are welcome to join the discussions.

For further information on the Religion seminar series please contact Ben Schonthal.
