Religious Imagination in Contemporary Culture (3 credits – online)
From the arts to film, from television to graphic novel, from music video to social media, the multimedia texts of our culture are filled with religious themes. Participants will join the instructor in exploring this landscape of popular culture, especially noting its religious themes. A brief time will be spent with foundational material in theological and media analysis theory. To imagine what is beneath the surface, is to be alert to the subtle and unexpected, to be open to new insights and to have one’s core assumptions challenged.
