Mass Culture: Theological Engagement and Spiritual Practice

  • Course Dates: Mon 18 May 2015, 3:00 pm to Thu 21 May 2015, 5:00 pm

This module considers the phenomenon of mass consumer technological culture as the backdrop to spirituality and ‘doing’ theology in our age.

We will examine ways in which leisure and lifestyle activities take over and mimic religious modes of orchestrating emotion and producing identity, examining the writings of sociologists, social anthropologists, social critics and theologians that seek to address and/or interpret this situation.

The module will trace the emergence of different ways of interpreting the phenomenon of the ‘modern’; especially the different and diverse ways in which mass culture has been understood throughout the genesis and development of modern culture.

Those not on the MA programme are very welcome to book on this module as an auditor.
