Welcome to Comm 480!
Welcome! This is the class blog for Comm 480: Religious Communication being taught at Texas A&M University in Fall 2013. In this class we will explore the relationship between religious communities and the media, and how media contribute to our understanding of lived religion. This will involve studying how religious communities and institutions respond to and utilize different forms of media, as well as how various media may shape ideas about popular religion. The blog will be used as a space to share general information about course assignments as well as to discuss issues raised in class. I look forward to a great semester learning together about how religious communities negotiate their use of media and how user-generated religion is performed online. -Dr Heidi Campbell
