About Sacred in Society

In dramatic and subtle ways, religion and spirituality are powerful influences in society. Sometimes religion plays a role in struggles for justice. At other times, it plays a role in sustaining violence and maintaining oppression.

By applying sociological lenses, our Sociology of Religion class at Hamilton College is collectively seeking to better understand the many ways religion influences society, as well as how society influences religion. We seek to understand how spirituality and religion manifest and effect many aspects of everyday life among different groups of people.
