title Why is religion controversial?
description <div><p>This module focuses on the intricate connections between religion and controversial issues, including politics, tradition, gender, multiculturalism, animism, atheism, violence, sex and capitalism. You will study processes of upheaval and change within religious traditions and some of the complex ? and sometimes clashing ? local, regional and national perspectives on familiar and unfamiliar controversies. Using a mix of historical, sociological and ethnographic sources, approaches and methods, this module will help you to develop your understanding of the nature and role of 'religion' in historical and contemporary societies. The assignments will encourage you to develop your independent research skills and make significant use of the rich resources available online via the OU Library.</p></div>
