Nov 14: Affecting Performances: The Media & Embodied Politics of Contemporary Christianity



Affecting Performances: The Media & Embodied Politics of Contemporary Christianity

a panel discussion with Anthony Petro & Jill Stevenson

Thursday, November 14
5 to 7 pm

Anthony Petro, Religion, Boston University

Jill Stevenson, Theatre Arts, Marymount Manhattan College

In her recently published book, Sensational Devotion: Evangelical Performance in Twenty-First-Century America, Jill Stevenson looks to biblical theme parks, Passion plays, Holy Land recreations, mega-churches, and creationist museums to examine the sensuous practices and performative genres that shape evangelical beliefs – and believers.  Tonight, in this forum with Anthony Petro, Stevenson discusses the interplay between religion and media and the role of embodied feelings in the creation of religious worlds.
