Empire and religion: The religious dimension of the British Empire (1600-2000)
In this course students will study the relationship between religion and empire through the lens of the British
Empire (1600-2000). Students will first (1) be provided with a general outline of the global expansion of the
British Empire between 1600 and 1950 and the relationship with Christian mission. We will then (2) focus on
the role of religion in colonial conflicts and (3) the encounter between world religions, such as Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam and Christianity in the context of the British Empire. Next we will explore a special theme (4):
the impact of green British imperial policy on climate change. Finally (5), we will consider how post-colonial
global religious non-governmental organisations (RNGOs) in a way continue the legacy of Empire and mission in our modern world. The course objectives are to familiarise students with the role of religion in globalisation, to become acquainted with issues related to religion and colonialism, to study these through relevant primary
sources (including novels) and to reflect on this theme in a final essay.
