Teaching Zep

Dr. Josh Gunn, in the Department of Communications at the University of Texas, Austin, is currently teaching a fascinating course on Rhetoric and Religion. And one of the required texts for his lucky students is Erik Davis' book on Zeppelin IV. For those of you who want the full details of the course, here they are:

CMS 367: Rhetoric and Religion
Paranormalism and Theological Form
MWF 11:00-12:00, CMA A3.124
Dr. Josh Gunn
Phone: 471-3933 Office Address: CMA A7.126
Office Hours: M: 10-11; F: 2-3. Email: slewfoot@mail.utexas.edu

Course Texts: Erik Davis, Led Zeppelin IV, Bob Ellis, Lucifer Ascending, Erich Goode,
Paranormal Beliefs: A Sociological Introduction; Whitley Strieber, Communion: A True Story;
Malachi Martin, Hostage to the Devil: The Possession and Exorcism of Five Contemporary
Americas; John Edward, Crossing Over ; AND a reading packet available at the “Serve-UCenter”
at Highland and Stanford (just south of the south gate). If you do not own a bible, a
copy of Revelations titled The Apocalypse would be helpful.


Thanks to St. Murse for the tip-off, and to Josh for the syllabus details.
