Dr. Stewart Hoover, University of Colorado Boulder, to Present "Religion in the Media Age" at the FODORs Annual Banquet

Monday, April 28, 2014

Dr. Stewart M. Hoover is a Professor of Media Studies and Religious Studies at the University of Colorado at Boulder, where he directs the Center for Media, Religion, and Culture. His field of scholarship is in media audience research, media history, and the social and political impact of media.

Dr. Hoover is an internationally-recognized expert on media and religion, and the University of Colorado's Center is one of only four in the world devoted to this important and emerging field of study.

This lecture, "Religion in the Media Age", will consider the changing landscape of religion in relation to trends in contemporary media. All religions have been mediated, but in the twenty-first century these once-separate domains are rapidly merging, with new practices and technologies transforming the mediation of religion. Dr. Hoover will explore this situation in historical, theoretical, and empirical terms, reviewing the growing interdisciplinary literatures focused on media and religion, with an eye to future directions of the fields of media studies and religious studies.

This event will take place on April 28th at 7:30 PM in the Kansas Room of the Kansas Union.
