This book offers a systematic exploration of the role that gender plays when religion, media use and values in contemporary society interact. The collection draws together some of the best thinking on the topic and provides a platform for teaching and research. The chapters represent some of the best and most up-to-date scholarship on media and religion from a gender perspective. They include case studies drawn from a variety of countries and contexts, and show the range of theoretical perspectives and empirical material in current work. The volume discusses key concepts in gender theory and shows how these can be applied to research in religion and media, as well as outling new areas and challenges for the future. Students studying media, religion and gender at advanced level will find this a valuable resource, as will scholars and researchers working in this important and growing field.
