    Religion and the Constitution(s) (20572). 2 units. Modernity and liberal democracy are consonant with religious liberty, freedom of conscience, free speech, and different degrees of separation between religion and politics. But the way these principles are organized and interpreted varies across and within different national constitutional and legal regimes. Most recently, religious revivals and the development of religious diversity have challenged traditional arrangements. This course will examine the legal and constitutional status of religion in the United States in light of this evolving global climate, taking account of both different national contexts (e.g., the U.S., Canada, Europe, Asia, and Latin America) as well as the places, discourses and topoi in which these new challenges occur (the public sphere, schools and universities, corporations, or the military; regarding prayers, religious symbols, creationism, state subsidies, etc.). Self-scheduled examination or paper option. P. Weil.
