We are delighted to announce our fall 2019 symposium to be held at Saint Louis University from October 10-12, 2019. This event, sponsored by the Lived Religion in the Digital Age project with support from the Henry Luce Foundation, will convene scholars of religion and theology across a variety of fields of expertise to engage in interdisciplinary conversation around critical (re)orientations in the study of religion, from visual media, law, and urbanization to environmental theology, migration, and racial justice.
We invite people of all ages and identities to submit original photographs of religion--whatever that means to you--in St. Louis for this #ArchCityReligion community photoburst. For photographers under the age of 18, please have a parent or legal guardian submit your work. All submissions are welcome and will help us better understand what and where religion is and does in the greater St. Louis area.
Lived Religion in the Digital Age seeks to better understand religion in American public life through collaboration with members of local communities representing diverse traditions, histories, and practices. Attending to sounds, sights, and spaces, as well as to teachings and texts, our research team works to build a robust multisensory inventory of religion as it is lived in the complex realities of modern life.
We are honored to have Lauren Pond as our artist in residence. Lauren is a documentary photographer who specializes in faith and religion, and is currently working on a project documenting religion in the Midwest United States. (photo credit: Lauren Pond, laurenpondphoto.com)
