Religion and Globalization: Gender and Theory

February 1, 2021

This curricular module guide explores gender and theory in the relationship between religion and globalization, complicating the traditional secularization thesis that religion will become less important as societies progress. The guide expands on the "Religion and Globalization: Gender and Theory" virtual course module by assembling open-access sources and providing discussion questions on theory and gender in the globalization of religion. 

These materials are designed to engage students with the following issues:

  • ​historical and contemporary processes of the globalization of religion, global denominationalism, and religious-secular dynamics
  • gender and globalization
