Cartoons, Theology and Relationship with God

Date:

CARTOONS, THEOLOGY & RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD

A Three-Day Course, January 22-24, 2013

To Register, Click Here.

Cartoons, political and comic, often convey theological messages and, by their portrayal of God and religion, shape the spiritual life of the reader-viewer. Both literature and art, cartoons provide the reader-viewer a medium for engaging the holy through both imagination and gaze. Cartoons can also tap into the gift of humor in the spiritual life.

This course examines the religious and spiritual character of cartoons and is appropriate for anyone who enjoys cartoons, who is interested in the influence of cartoons on the religious understanding and spiritual lives of adults, teens and children, or who may feel called to prayer through cartoon-making. Course reading will include the now classic The Gospel According to Peanuts by Robert L. Short. Making a guest presentation will be the Rt. Rev. Andrew Deitsche, the new Bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of New York, himself an accomplished cartoon artist.

Prof. Clair McPherson. 1-2 Credits or Audit.

Students taking the course for 2 credits will do independent study in the Spring 2013 (Easter) term and complete a longer final paper. Students in the spiritual direction programs may take the course at the 300 level to fulfill practicum requirements. The course may be audited.

Epiphany 2013. Tuesday-Thursday, January 22-24, 10:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
