Brazil Research in Media, Religion and Culture
Getting ready to go to University of Unisinos, Brazil to meet two doctoral students who were awarded Fellowships by the International Study Commission on Media, Religion and Culture. Viviane Borelli is looking into the mediated religious aspects of popular public gatherings in football stadiums. Ignacio Sierra is looking into the decentralization and re-signification of religious discourse in contemporary communications media.
I’m travelling with Germï¿½n Rey who is about to publish a book on the religious dimensions of the Latin American telenovela.
