Books Info:

Female Voices  free pdf Religious experiences have become increasingly relevant to contemporary understandings of modern multi-cultural European communities, including those in Norway. In the USA, multi-cultural and multi-religious experiences have been part of the social fabric for centuries and have often been reflected in American literature. In this book issues pertaining to religion and identity have been explored through a reader-response study of female Norwegian students of American literature. The books deal with religious experiences in four world religions: Christianity, Judaism, Islam and Hinduism. The students come from majority-culture and minority-culture backgrounds and represent various religious and secular world views. In addition to the reader-response study the book also discusses the function of literature in a didactic and religious context, and questions its role as a means to stage dialogues between different religious and ethnic groups in Norway.
