Abstract

In recent years, the topic of media and religion has become increasingly studied. This may perhaps relate to the number of news stories that have had some connection with religion, whether or not the supposed connection is justified. In 1993, in Uppsala, the Uppsala Group was formed to consider the topic which has been designated “Media, Religion and Culture”. Since that time, there have been conferences organized by this group in Boulder, Colorado: Edinburgh; Jyväskylä, Finland; Louisville, Kentucky and this year the conference will take place in Sigtuna, Sweden. This edited collection came into being following discussions at Jyväskylä that were continued in Louisville.
