Approaches to Religion 3: Politics

Location: OCHS Library
Speaker: Professor Gavin Flood
Date: June 2, 2011
Time: 14:00 to 15:30

The third seminar will discuss the relation of religion to politics and the place of religion in the public sphere. We will look at the idea of the critique of religion as emancipatory critique (Nietzsche, Foucault), the exclusion of women from the symbolic order (Kristeva, Irigaray) and how this is articulated in India (Manushi).
