Welcome to 460-903, Fall 2011!

Howdy and welcome to Comm 460: Communication & Contemporary Issues, which wil explore Religion and Digital Culture.

This course will explore the relationship between new media, religion and digital culture by investigating religious communities use and response to digital media and how media digital media facilitate new understandings and expressions of lived religion. This will involve studying the nature of new media technologies (i.e. internet, social media, mobile phones, etc), religion, online culture and networked society.

Together we will investigate how religious communities approach, speak about, and utilize new media technologies. As well as how to critique the role digital media plays in contemporary religious meaning making. I look forward to learning together in about these issues.
