Special Topics: Religion and Cultural Change: Myths and Images of Post Modernity
Lithuania is a culture where ancient religion and modern ideology is being challenged by Western cultural consumer products which are part of the global cultural marketplace. North America is a secular, highly religious (often civil), pluralistic, producer of popular culture products exported on the global scale. In this seminar, students from Eastern Mennonite University will join students at LCC International University to experience, observe, and learn from and with each other about their own and each other’s changing cultures. Contemporary culture and the role of religion in the context of global change will be the focus of this seminar. As the changing cultures are explored, students will be encouraged to examine and test their own world-views.
