2016 MORMON MEDIA STUDIES SYMPOSIUM

CALL FOR PAPERS, PANELS, AND PRESENTATIONS

Theme: Mormonism and Global Media
Conference site: BYU Hawai?i campus in Lā?ie, Hawai?i
Conference date: November 3 & 4, 2016
Proposal submissions due July 1, 2016

Sponsored by Department of International Cultural Studies and the College of Language, Culture and Arts, BYU Hawai?i

Mormonism grows in a world with a variety of religion-society and religion-media relationships.

Thus Mormonism?s treatment by the media, its attempts to publicize itself through the media, and its members’ use of media technologies in religiously relevant ways?to name a few types of relationships with the media?may differ significantly from U.S. Mormon-media patterns. A conference on Mormonism and media surveys the current situation, raises new questions, and encourages new conversations about a globally growing religion and the part media play in particular cultures.
