RELI 068 - (HP) Apocalypse: Now and Then

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
What is it about our time that makes it ripe for an apocalypse? From video games to movies, we return again and again to envisioning the end of the world. This course will look at the history of the apocalypse in mythology and religion, and will also analyze the particular currency of apocalyptic thinking in our present day. Our studies will take us from the popular interest in Mayan calendars and zombies, to contemporary philosophers, independent filmmakers, economists, environmentalists, novelists, poets and painters.

Prerequisite(s)/Course Notes:
