Week 7- Monday

There is a structure that underlies Western movies, which can be extended then to superhero and any real epic movie, of the fight between good and evil with good winning. Each Western movie lays its particular plot line and characters over that “Western Movie Structure” to create a sign which is the Western Movie. Can the same be said about religions in America? Is there a structure underlying the narrative of each religion in American culture, such that each individual religion is giving specifics to an underlying movement occuring within the culture: higher being, moral code, meaning, purpose. Can we see religion in America like this?

    Great question – I think you’re onto something here. There may be different genres of american religion that follow particular patterns, that’d make for an interesting study.
