For anthropologists, the most effective way to think of religion is as a symbolic system that is socially enacted through rituals and other aspects of social life that relate to the ultimate issues of humankind’s existence. We will explore four different ways that anthropologists have historically made sense of religion, rituals, and beliefs around the world.
At the end of the event, five student attendees will have a chance to win free copies of the book “Creole Religions in the Caribbean.”
