Media and Religion
The aim of this Temporary Working Group is to bring the study of media and religion into productive conversation with media and communication studies carried out in the European context.
The goal is twofold. Firstly, to invite media and communication scholars interested in religion to a closer dialogue with each other, and secondly, to deepen the theoretical and empirical knowledge and understanding on “religious issues” as they relate to the media, particularly in the context of Europe.
