Here's a poster I illustrated and designed for an event in November.
The event details:
From #creepingsharia Twitter storms to headlines about women Bishops, questions of faith, religion and belief are a constant feature of the contemporary media landscape. What these media messages say, how they circulate, and what is done with them by whom, are critical issues. How do media and political elites engage with faith and identity? What messages and misrepresentations result? And what are the challenges and opportunities at a time when the under 30s are more likely to encounter news on Facebook than in a newspaper?
Misrepresenting Faith is a one-day interdisciplinary symposium, bringing together academics from media and communications, sociology, anthropology and religious studies to explore the role of media in a plethora of crises, controversies and conspiracies concerning faith in Britain today. We will also hear from practitioners and campaigners working to build better understanding and reporting, and discuss practical steps we can take to build a positive media environment around identities of religion and belief.
You can register admission here (it's free).
I'll be updating the poster with names of speakers closer to the event.
