RLCT-2017-FA841: Death and Immortality

We invite community members to join our Community Engagement Courses. As you immerse yourself in the course content of your choosing, you will have the opportunity to connect with both the course instructor and Nipissing students. There is no requirement to submit coursework, nor will you receive a grade for participating in the course. Attitudes about death and the afterlife vary greatly from culture to culture. The process of death can affect individuals as well as communities on personal, familial, social, religious and cultural levels. This course will explore a variety of religious responses to death and dying, and notions of the afterlife and immortality, as they are expressed in religious, philosophical and literary texts. Some of the central ideas for this discussion will be: What is revealed in the human confrontation with death? What happens after death? What does life mean in the face of death? What are the religious/spiritual/ethical implications?
