Media and religion
look for two songs, music videos, movies or TV series that have religious messaging.
Describe the lyrics and/or themes, then analyze your chosen media and the religious messages imbedded in the media. Tell us what those messages imply and state whether the messages are explicit or implicit.
Place this all in a response paper (500-600 words)
Think about the themes we discussed in class to help you write your response.
Mediation / Mediatization
Aesthetics and content
Secular Societies intersecting with religion (as in the documentary Jesus Camp)
Religion in Politics
Religious authorities: Fatwas, online Fatwas and television preachers
