Teaching Religious Literacy Through Imagination, & the Arts: Topic in Power and Hegemony

Register Here

The arts and imagination are powerful components of teaching and learning about religious literacy. Like religion itself, art and visual media provide critical windows into the forces shaping dominant worldviews, as well as vehicles for critically re-evaluating and re-imagining them.

In this self-paced module and one-day virtual workshop, join RPL education staff and RPL Fellow and Ramy writer and producer, Maytha Alhassen, for an exploration of frameworks, tools, and resources for engaging with the arts as part of teaching religious literacy. In preparation for engagement with Maytha, portions of this module will focus on question of power, hegemony, and representations of Islam. 

Note: Workshop content is focused on secondary school educators and requires prior introduction to religious literacy methods, either through Religion and Public Life or Religious Literacy Project workshop or online course. 

This workshop includes a live session from 1–5pm Eastern Time on December 10th, as well as a self-paced online module to be completed by that date.

Certificates of completion for professional development points are available upon request.
