LOVED this professor! Every lecture was interesting. She would bring guest speakers. We could hear the same ideas and then compare them with different points of view. She really broadened my mind and exposed me to great questions. She had us read from six different books that you could check them out from the library. She also gives a lot of extra credit, too.

I do not recommend take Professor Oberman's class. I am in my last semester of college and this class has more work than any four hundred level course in either of my majors. In this class we have to read FOUR books including the WHOLE textbook. The Tests and quizzes are extremely specific even though I always do the readings. She is unclear in directions for anything.

I thought this class would be an easy Gen Ed, but the grading was absolutely ridiculous, as well as the assignment requirements not being clear at all. The majority of my time is spent on this class, and I'm still having a hard time keeping a good grade here. This class is neither interesting nor easy, just don't take it at all.

Prof. Oberman really wants her students to succeed. The only reason why this course is hard is because she has high expectations of you. She makes you work your butt off which I believe is your responsibility as a student. You shouldn't just invest your money but also your mind. She gives a lot of extra credit, a lot of work, and a lot of unforgettable, interesting content.

Honestly, I feel like this class should be a mandatory part of higher education. I learned and questioned so much about myself and the universe. I was motivated to be a critical thinker and a better writer. Readings are very fascinating! I really loved this class and I felt bonded with my group. You'll have to do a lot of work to get an A, but it's totally worth it.

    2016 annual conference will be held at the University of Arizona April 1-3, 2016.
    Call for papers will go out in July.
    Conference theme is Social Justice:

    The overall theme for the 2016 Conference is Social Justice. We are using this idea in its broadest terms. We are hoping to encompass through the different Units racism, feminism, womanism, eco-justice, gender justice, classism, neo-colonialism, etc. seen through the eyes of religious scholars.

    We are living in a world that has embraced technology/science, neglected mythos and uses religion as a front for all the “isms” that foster inequality in the world.

    How does your research unearth a path to sanity? What have you discovered from the past that would be helpful? What are you exploring/inventing for the future?
