Approaches to Religion 3: Politics

OCHS Library
Professor Gavin Flood
Thursday, 2 June 2011 - 2:00pm to 3:30pm

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).
