Religion 479: Seminar in Christian Thought

Religion 479: Seminar in Christian Thought
(NEW TIME!) Tues 2-4:50 – Professor Lisa Bitel (bitel@usc.edu)

THE SUPERNATURAL in Christian Thought & Practice

Angels, apparitions, visions, magic, possession, saints, demons, ghosts…all these and other unearthly phenomena are built into historical Christian doctrines & practices. How did believers of the past define the supernatural, the divine, and the demonic? what techniques did they use to invoke and interact with the supernatural? How do modern believers reconcile 21st science & technologies with ideas about the paranormal and supernatural?

We shall INVESTIGATE…

Class format will consist of discussion, guest lectures, viewing of films, and at least one off campus class meeting. Assignments include regular participation, brief presentations, blog postings, and a research project.

SOCInema presents: The Central Park Five

SOCInema presents:
The Central Park Five
Join us for popcorn, pizza and a riveting documentary!

In 1989, five black and Latino teenagers from Harlem were arrested and later convicted of raping a white women in New York City’s Central Park. They spent between 6 and 13 years in prison before a serial rapist confessed that he alone had committed the crime, leading to their convictions being overturned. Set against a backdrop of a decaying city beset by violence and racial tension, The Central Park Five tells the story of that horrific crime, the rush to judgment by the police, a media clamoring for sensational stories and an outraged public, and the five lives upended by this miscarriage of justice.

Thursday, October 30th
4:30-6:00pm
