Journalism professor Stewart M. Hoover and Monica Emerich, a post-doctoral fellow at CU’s Center for Media, Religion and Culture, explore the relationship between different forms of spirituality, media and their effect on social reform in Media, Spiritualities and Social Change. Increasingly, religion and spirituality have become attached to everything from consumer goods to the New Age to eco-activism. Hoover and Emerich discuss media’s role in this phenomenon, bringing together scholarly perspectives from around the world and across disciplines to explore how these new ‘spiritualities’ express themselves through and with media.
