Popular Visual Media and the Bible

A one day conference to explore the relationships between biblical texts and popular visual media.

A Centre for Biblical Studies research event
Date6 April 2020
Time9:00 to 17:00

This conference aims to explore the varied relationships between biblical texts and contemporary popular visual media such as sci-fi or fantasy films and TV shows, comic books and video games. Traditionally considered ‘low culture’, such media have received an upsurge in popularity over the last decade and have become a major source of social commentary and individual expression, especially in relation to religious texts such as the Bible. We welcome scholarly analyses of any aspect of popular visual culture and biblical texts (including non-canonical texts). The conference will take place at the University of Exeter on Monday 6th April 2020. Please send abstracts (200-300 words) and a short bio to Dr Rebekah Welton at r.c.welton@exeter.ac.uk and Dr Zanne Domoney-Lyttle at zanne.domoney-lyttle@glasgow.ac.uk, no later than December 31st, 2019. For more information, please contact the organisers.
