The Making of Human Sacredness


Period: Modul 3 (14/1–24/3)

Ämne: Kurser på engelska

Whether or not one considers people sacred in an absolute sense, one can analyze the cultural construction of human sacredness. What is it about the human being that is made inviolable, and how is that collective work accomplished, contested, and sometimes undone? We explore such questions by examining political and religious rituals, human-rights declarations, and the workings of general-welfare societies, as well as literature and film.
