Description: We study fundamentalist movements in Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and Hinduism. How did fundamentalism move from American Protestantism to signify a global phenomenon? How do fundamentalists describe themselves? What are their grievances, ambitions, goals? Do they intersect with ethno-national identities? Does fundamentalist piety differ from religious extremism and violence? What are the roles of men and women? Letter grade only.
