Colleen McDannell, Sterling M. McMurrin Chair of Religious Studies at the University of Utah, will deliver remarks entitled “The Story Lives Here: Faith, History, and Instructional Mormon Media.” The lecture will examine the use of visual culture in American religions utilizing the new LDS Church History Department production of “The Story Lives Here.” The lecture is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Brian Birch at brian.birch@uvu.edu or Boyd Petersen at boyd.petersen@uvu.edu or visit www.uvu.edu/religiousstudies.

Colleen McDannell is a leading scholar in American cultural and religious history. Her book Material Christianity urged scholars to look at the “stuff” of religion for new evidence on how people practice their faith. Picturing Faith: Photography and the Great Depression was Professor McDannell’s third book with Yale University Press. Funded with a Guggenheim Fellowship, and a three-year Lilly Foundation grant, Picturing Faith discusses American religion as captured through the lenses of some of greatest photographers of the twentieth century. She also curated a traveling exhibition related to the project. More recently, she has published Catholics in the Movies (Oxford University Press) and is currently working on a book project entitled My Mother’s Parish: Living Vatican II (forthcoming from Basic Books).
