It uncovers how entertainment television provides a conduit for religious messages that speak to the role of contemporary American faith.
Toward Decentering the New Testament is the first introductory text to the New Testament written by an African American woman biblical scholar and an Asian-American male biblical scholar. This text privileges the voices, scholarship, and concerns of minoritized nonwhite peoples and communities. It is written from the perspectives of minoritized voices. The first few chapters cover issues such as biblical interpretation, immigration, Roman slavery, intersectionality, and other topics. Questions raised throughout the text focus readers on relevant contemporary issues and encourage critical reflection and dialogue between student-teachers and teacher-students.
 Do you find yourself contemplating the imminent end of the world? Do you wonder how society might reorganize itself to cope with global cataclysm? (Have you begun hoarding canned goods and ammunition...?) Visions of an apocalypse began to dominate mass media well before the year 2000. Yet narratives since then present decidedly different spins on cultural anxieties about terrorism, disease, environmental collapse, worldwide conflict and millennial technologies. Many of these concerns have been made metaphorical: zombie hordes embody fear of out-of-control appetites and encroaching disorder. Other fears, like the prospect of human technology's turning on its creators, seem more reality based. This collection of new essays explores apocalyptic themes in a variety of post-millennial media, including film, television, video games, webisodes and smartphone apps.
With an analysis informed by more than two decades of cultural work and activism on the frontlines, Nightmare Overhanging Darkly reviews the historic tradition of Black cultural resistance to Western imperialism and oppression. In emphasizing the process by which creative artists have initiated and influenced social change, Dr. Acklyn Lynch issues a challenge to Black cultural workers and offers Black educators a blueprint for restructuring Black colleges and universities to best assist Black empowerment. Dr. Lynch centers his study on the 1940s to the 1990s and offers critiques of the major political activists and creative artists of that period -- including Paul Robeson, Sonia Sanchez, Charlie Parker, Malcolm X, Katherine Dunham, Jeff Donaldson, Alice Walker, George Jackson, Richard Wright, Toni Cade Bambara, Romare Bearden, KRS-ONE and others. Lynch reminds us that there is an organic link between art and resistance that moves beyond art for art's sake.--Publisher's description.
In der modernen Gesellschaft finden okkulte und satanistische Praktiken und Vorstellungen nach wie vor Akzeptanz in der Bevölkerung. Allerdings sind neben die bekannten Formen der geschlossenen Gruppenorganisationen (Loge, Orden) neue, offene Formen, die medien- und musikvermittelten Jugendszenen, getreten. Das Buch wendet sich in diesem Zusammenhang exemplarisch der deutschen "Gothic-Szene" zu und untersucht in synchroner Perspektive deren Gruppenstrukturen, typische Habitusformationen von Gruppenmitgliedern sowie die Passungskonstellationen und Integrationsdynamiken von Szene und Mitgliedern. Darüber hinaus werden typische Vergemeinschaftungsformen und Deutungsmuster, wie sie innerhalb der Kultur der Gothics vorherrschend sind, auf religionssoziologische Theorieentwicklungen bezogen.
