The Religion and Popular Culture area investigates the interaction between religion, in its various manifestations (sacred texts, sacred spaces, religious practices, religious commerations and so on), and popular culture. The area is interested not only in how religion is presented within the products of popular culture (literature, film, television, social media, music, fashion, and so forth) but also in how religious sensibilities may influence the products of popular culture. The area is open to scholarship from different religious traditions and historical eras.

This standing session welcomes papers that explore any aspect of networks or knowledge in contemporary or historical media. Paper topics can include but are not limited to:
