Andrew Koke. This class will examine the familiar concept of "Hell,"
noting particularly where the idea has come from, how it has been
modified over time, how it has been popularized, and finally how it
is used today. Students will be asked to analyze current media
presentations of Hell, identifying the historical and cultural
contributions that permeate contemporary representations. In so
doing, the course seeks to suggest that the current notion of Hell
is simply the latest in a long series and indicates a great deal
about western culture.
