Religion & Film in Global Perspective

I’m slated to teach “Religion & Film in Global Perspective” in Fall 2016 (second eight weeks) for Indiana University’s Global Village Living-Learning Center. Suffice it to say, I’m pretty excited for it. I’m imagining it as a Religious Studies meets Film Criticism meets Anthropology of the Media type of course. I think it’s going to be a lot of fun. Scroll down to see some of the films (and portions of films) we will screen in the class. I tend to choose films that highlight fictional deployments and representations of boundary maintenance across the registers of nationality, gender, sexuality, religious affiliation, socioeconomic structure, but I’m also a sucker for choosing films I’ve enjoyed that do some sort of socioreligious work. Any suggestions? Inspired by this recent edited volume, I’m thinking about working in at least one Cohen brother film.
