Description: Even in today’s seemingly secular pop culture landscape, the Bible is a strong artistic, social, and political influence. We will explore ways in which the Bible is used in contemporary pop culture by analyzing biblical references in music, film, art, and other media. We will show how pop culture shapes understandings of the Bible and vice versa. Grad students will write a 25-30 pp. research paper and lead at least one extended class discussion.
