COSPONSORED SESSION: African Religions Unit and Religion and Popular Culture Unit

Call for Proposals

Religion and Popular Culture in Africa
Religion and popular culture are often seen as separate spheres, yet in African societies there is considerable overlap and fluidity between the two. Religious language, imagery, symbols and texts often shape, and are shaped by, the products and influences of contemporary mass culture in its various forms. Papers in this panel explore this productive relationship between religion and popular culture in African contexts. (For possible co-sponsorship with African Religions Unit and Religion and Popular Culture.)
