This essay involves a current affairs analysis in religion: looking at a contemporary issue of religion and/in society. Essentially, it involves these basic components: 1) choose a recent (ideally from the last 10-15 years) example of religion in society in the news – any example, big or small, in any society; 2) analyze it (i.e., explain it beyond surface-level reporting) using an academic source or sources; and 3) provide your own opinion.
