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.

Hemispheric Institute of Performance & Politics
20 Cooper Square, 5th Floor

Co-sponsored by the NYU Center for Religion & Media; Center for the Study of Gender & Sexuality, and Hemispheric Institute of Performance & Politics; with generous support of the Henry Luce Foundation.
