CRITICAL COMPARATIVE SCRIPTURES PROGRAM (CCS)

School of Religion
Claremont Graduate University
Application Process Open

The Critical Comparative Scriptures (CCS) program seeks to problematize scriptures as freighted shorthand for a complex cross-cultural phenomenon involving our signs/discourses, rituals and practices, artifacts, representations, myths, ideologies, sentiments and power relations. It raises basic questions and issues about self-reflexivity, positionality and interestedness, power and difference. In short, the CCS program facilitates research on the work that human begins make scriptures do for them. As a comparative program, CCS strives to be comprehensive in scope, encouraging research across “world” religion traditions, geo-spatial boundaries, socio-cultural complexes, and vernacular traditions. It expects students to employ anthropology, sociology, psychology, social history, linguistic, performance studies and political theory, among other disciplines, in an attempt to explain how and why and with what consequences human beings scripturalize.
