Focus Group Description

Class Title: The History of the New Age
Student Faciliator: Taylor Herring
Email: herritay@uw.edu
Supervised by: Phillip Thurtle

'New Age' practices, a Westernized focus on spirituality over religion, has become exceedingly popular in modern times. However, these practices are anything but new. In this class, we will explore the history and social context of 'new age' practices including astrology, tarot cards, palm reading, mythology, oracles and seers, alchemy, and mediumship - as well as explore their revival in Western culture. In addition to weekly readings and discussion, each student will be able to choose a topic of their own to present on as a final project at the end of the quarter.
