Paul Blankenship intends this seminar to be taken by students in a particular masters level program at Seattle University’s School of Theology and Ministry, but it’s open to “all graduate students interested in contemporary spirituality.” Here’s the course description:
This seminar is an introduction to the critical study of spirituality. It is a conversation about how and why other people are spiritual, what this means, and whether it makes a difference. Because it is not possible in an academic quarter (or a lifetime) to cover the mélange of contemporary spiritualities in the world, students are encouraged to research alternative spiritualities so that our conversation avoids hegemony. May the wind scatter and confuse us. And help us understand.
A copy of the syllabus is available to SSCS members from the blog moderator.
