Identify Religious Perspectives and Approaches To Religion at Play
Papers should be 8-10 double-spaced pages in length (12-point standard font), not including bibliography. They should analyze a recent issue, court case, or piece of legislation in the US, Canada, or elsewhere. Students will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of key concepts they have learned in the course, identify religious perspectives and approaches to religion at play, critically use terms such as “secular” and “liberal”, and offer their own voice in their analysis.
I would expect that the paper breakdown would be roughly 3-4 pages of description, 4-5 pages of historical and conceptual analysis, 1-2 pages of individual response and summary. Footnotes should be used as needed, in any standard format, with consistency being important. A bibliography should be provided at the end of the paper, not included in the page-count. Please do not write anything in footnotes except references. All discussion should be in the paper.
