Guest Lecture: "Pop Culture & Religion" on Tuesday, 11/30 at 5:30 p.m.

November 17, 2021

The Phil/Rels Conversations series welcomes Dr. Megan Goodwin via Google Meet. Far more people learn about American minority religions through TV, movies, and books you can buy in an airport than they ever do in school. Let’s talk about why popular culture that makes monsters of religious outsiders matters more than you might think.

Megan Goodwin is a scholar of gender, race, sexuality, politics, and American religions. She is the author of Abusing Religion: Literary Persecution, Sex Scandals, and American Minority Religions (Rutgers 2020). With Ilyse Morgenstein Fuerst, she cohosts Keeping It 101: A Killjoy’s Introduction to Religion Podcast.

Homework: Before you attend, please listen this podcast and we’ll talk about why portrayals of religious minorities in the media matter.
