Field of Dreams?: Contemporary Explorations at the Interface, between Religion and Popular Culture
5-7 May 2011
Sarum College, Salisbury
Why might TV be as significant as Bach? How are faith communities to deal with what people actually do with the media and popular culture? What are the pros and cons of the WWW for religious groups? What is happening to belief itself in a media-saturated age? Topics like these will feature in this conference for anyone researching into, or interested in, religion’s and theology’s interaction with media and popular culture and the arts.
Dr. Heidi Campbell (Texas A&M University)
Dr. Jeffrey Keuss (Seattle Pacific University)
Dr. Jolyon Mitchell (University of Edinburgh)
Dr. John Lyden (Grand View University)
