Call for papers:

7th International Conference on Media, Religion and Culture

Ryerson University, Toronto, Canada

August 9 - 13, 2010

Hosted in one of the world's most diverse cities, the 7th International
Conference on Media, Religion and Culture invites papers and panels
addressing a wide range of content and methodological approaches. Past
meetings have brought to the fore research into both very old and very new
mediums of communication, with traditions ranging from ancient indigenous
practice to the most recent cyber-ritual, from settings in the global north
and south.  Scholars as well as practitioners and professionals in the
fields of media, religion and culture may submit abstracts for
consideration. Graduate students are always very welcome.

Topics may include (but are not limited to):

         The place of journalism at the nexus of media, religion and
culture

         Investigations of media and culture associated with non-Christian
traditions

         Studies involving hyperlocal examples of media/religion and
culture

         Ways in which media, religion and culture can be taught within
university curriculum

         Gender and our understanding of media, religion and culture

Proposals for panels (including three or four participants) and papers will
be accepted online at: www.journalism.ryerson.ca/CMRC2010/
<http://www.journalism.ryerson.ca/CMRC2010/>    Abstracts must include the
title, the participant name(s) and institutional affiliation, contact
information and a description of the proposal, up to 500 words in length.
