CFP: Religion, Performance and Popular Culture

  

2009 Association for Theater in Higher Education, New York, Aug. 8-11

  

The Religion and Theatre Focus Group of ATHE invites proposals for a
possible multi-disciplinary panel dealing with issues of religious
performance within popular culture.

  

This panel will be particularly concerned with instances in which
consumers of popular culture are called upon to interrogate or promote
religious identity through embodiment and enactment. Here, religion is
broadly defined to encompass a wide range of spiritualities and religious
practices.

  

Possible sites for such performances include, but are not limited to:

  

Television, fan culture

New media, online communities

Gaming, RPGs, LARPing

Comics

Music, audience reception

Consumer products, advertising

Interactive media, audience participation-based live performances

  

Please submit a 250-300 word abstract and brief bio to Jason Winslade at
DePaul University, jwinslad_at_depaul.edu no later than October 15, 2008.
