Religion in culture fascinates me. In my intellectual approach to religion, I focus on strategies of representation, on processes of communication, and on symbolic systems. I am interested in the media dimension of religion in historical and contemporary contexts. This field of study encompasses the European history of religion as well as religion in contemporary society. Which roles do media assume in religious traditions? How is religion presented and negotiated in contemporary media? Cultural studies approaches are applied to explore these fields of research.
