ANTH 3170 - Religion in America: The Shakers and Other Utopian Societies


(3 Lecture Hours 0 Lab Hours 3 Credit Hours)

This hands-on religion course will focus on the practice of religion in historical and contemporary Utopian societies in the U.S. By examining the development and legacy of one of America’s most quintessential religious communities, the United Society of Believers in Christ’s Second Appearing (known as the Shakers), students will gain a wide range of skills and opportunities to explore diverse approaches to religion, theory, and methodology in anthropology. We will also examine other Utopian religious societies as comparative examples.
