AMST 224
U.S. Latinx Religions Spring 2023
Division II
Cross-listed AMST 224 / REL 224 / LATS 224

Class Details

In this course, we will engage aspects of Latinx religious experiences, practices, and expressions in the United States of America. Given the plurality of Latinx communities and religious lives in the U.S.A., we can only consider select contexts that help us understand the challenges of studying and defining the “religious” and “hybridity” in Latinx contexts. We will survey certain selected religious traditions and practices –such as popular Catholic devotions to Guadalupe, crypto-Judaism, curanderismo, Latinx Muslims, and SanterĂ­a–by focusing on particular moments of religious expression as elucidated in specific historiographies, ethnographies, art, literature, and film.
