Welcome to COMM 480 Spring 2011

Howdy All!  I am looking forward to this semester where together we will explore different issues and questions that emerge at the intersection of the study of media, religion and culture. Class discussion and lectures will explore different categories of religion including: Traditional Religion, Official Religion, Lived Religion and Implicit Religion.

The class blog is a space for further discussion of issues raised in class.  You can also blog for extra credit in class. To count for extra credit posts must reference course readings or concepts discussed in class, be rrelevant to unit and theme of the corresponding week, and provide concrete examples from news or popular culture to support your claims.  They must also be a minimum of 200 words, each post that meets these criteria is worth .25 percentage point towards your overall score, in other words 4 blogs = 1% point, and you can earn up to 2 extra percentage points.

Happy blogging!
