“In effect, we live in a legal, social, and institutional world where the only relations possible are extremely few, extremely simplified, and extremely poor. There is, of course, the relation of marriage, and the relations of family, but how many other relations should exist…!” -Michel Foucault

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.
