Description:
The course offers students the knowledge related to the sociological aspect of the phenomenon of popular religion for critical and creative reflection on the complex relationship between popular religion and modern society, thus allowing students to think critically about the role of popular religion in constructing a symbolic community and its role in everyday life. This approach opens a possible space of popular religion as a modern phenomenon that has taken the form of tradition and the past and is increasingly shaping the encounter of popular religion and modernity. A special place in the course belongs to the discussion of the meaning of popular religion in (post)modernity aimed at developing a new spirit of community that could be called post-traditional. During lectures and seminars, students prepare for a theoretical sociological conceptualization of popular religion, research into the role of popular religious frameworks in the construction of reality and discourse of acculturation, class conflicts and ideology of socio-political movements, which often promote certain economic and political interests, as well as for questioning the possibility of bias of religious content in popular religion. Special attention is paid to the development of an adequate modern theoretical and conceptual framework (methodological design) from which students prepare to develop research tools, without ideological limitations of earlier, opposing sociological paradigms, and start operationalizing some empirical research of popular religion, its factors, and various consequences. The expected learning outcomes relate to the ability to assess and understand the sociological interpretation of religion and the methodological approaches by which popular religion and religiosity can be explored.
