Rethinking Media, Religion, and Culture

Description
The growing connections between media, culture and religion are increasingly evident in contemporary society, but until now have rarely been theoretically linked.

The contributors to this volume effectively combine these areas into a coherent whole. The issues they examine include: the decline of religious institutions during the late twentieth century; the increasing autonomy and individualized practice of religion; and the surge of media and media-based icons that are often imbued with religious qualities, and the ensuing effect on cultural practices.
