Forging Interdisciplinary Research in Religious Studies and Mass Communication

This session of the ACLS/Luce Center-funded project “Interactive Skill Building to Improve Religious and International Affairs Coverage in Local Journalism” will focus on searching for research topics, questions, potential hypotheses and potential modes of analysis to conduct collaborative, interdisciplinary research about religious studies and mass communication. Wagner will facilitate the discussion by synthesizing work that tackles issues of media and journalism and leading a discussion focused upon building collaborative bridges between scholars of religious studies and scholars of journalism and mass communication. Faculty, graduate students and undergraduate students are welcome.
