Welcome! This is the class blog for Comm 663: Digital Religion being taught at Texas A&M University in Fall 2013. In this class we will explore the intersection between new media, religion and digital culture and how digital media contribute to the performance lived religion. . The blog will be used as a space to discuss issues raised in class, especially related to our collaborative class project on user-generated religion online. I look forward to a great semester learning together about how religious communities negotiate their use of media and how user-generated religion is performed online. -Dr Heidi Campbell
