The academy has taught us to focus on the rational and emphasize the intellect. A clear dichotomy is created between reason and the spiritual. To participate in the latter somehow makes the scholar less rigorous, sacrificing academic rigor. Rebelling against this norm has led me to move beyond discussions regarding religion’s aesthetics. This course will examine – through a hands-on methodology - how the arts contribute to the formation of liberative praxis.
