It has been suggested by a number of scholars that popular culture is "like" religion,"functions" as religion, or can do "religious work." Does this mean that Pop Culture has taken the place of traditional religion in today's world? Is there such a thing as a "Disney Religion"? Can trips to Graceland be considered pilgrimage? Is God encountered more often in super hero movies than in Churches? Is Pop culture a competitor in the pluralistic Religious Marketplace of today? These and more are questions I explore in my teaching and research. Visit my course pages by clicking an image below.
