Please join the CCSN and Dr. Paul Soukup, S.J, Santa Clara University, for an upcoming webinar titled “A Media Ecology of Theology,” on Tuesday, March 24, 8-9 pm EST. This webinar is free and open to the public.

Dr. Soukup has explored the connections between communication and theology since 1982. His many publications include Mass Media and the Moral Imagination with Philip J. Rossi, and Of Ong & Media Ecology: Essays in Communication, Composition, and Literary Studies. Dr. Soukup serves on the Boards of Trustees of the American Bible Society and of Loyola University of New Orleans.

Please join Dr. Soukup as he examines how changing communication practices have shaped theology over the history of Christianity. Here is a brief description of the webinar:

Building on media ecology approaches, Dr. Soukup examines how changing communication practices have shaped theology over the history of Christianity. He introduces media ecology, then discusses examples of theology in the oral tradition, Christian art, Christian music, Christian liturgy, church architecture, written and printed texts, film, and social media. The webinar will also consider how various theologians have employed different media forms or have reflected on what communication practices do to theology (Registration Fee: Free; Time: 8:00-9:00 pm, EST). This live presentation may be viewed by an individual or group of any size in a single feed.
