Communication Rights & Religion

EMP2831HF  L0101
Offered in Summer 2014  ·  New Course · Toronto (St. George Campus) Site

This introduction to the intersection of communication rights and religion offers an intensive cross-cultural learning environment, brining together students and scholars from the Global South and North. It articulates communications rights issues through the lens of contextual, practical theology. Issues explored against global contextual backgrounds include: inter-religious dialogue and peace building, gender and media, Indigenous rights, citizen journalism and digital frontiers, disability and accessibility rights. Students will engage these issues through interdisciplinary lectures, group work, plenary discussion, and written work. Class time will attend to both methodological issues and contextual case studies. This course is designed to provide students with an opportunity for cross-cultural and ecumenical learning, exposure to emerging social justice issues, and skills to attend to communication rights issues in their own ministerial contexts.

This course will serve as a designated elective in Church and Community under the MDiv degree program.
