The Use Of Reality Television And Social Media By Mormon Fundamentalist Groups. Changing Representations, Minds, And Laws., Mathilde Vanasse-Pelletier

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

This presentation will describe the interactions between religious fundamentalisms, in this case in the form of polygamous Mormon culture, and information technology. We will also discuss the way that the various information transmission strategies used by advocates of plural marriage can lead to effective changes in laws and public policies by presenting the case of the prosecution of the Brown family, stars of Sister Wives, by the State of Utah.

Faith Thinking Foundations: Online Religious (Meta)Literacy Education Within A Congregational Context, Rebecca Klemme Eliceiri 2015 University of Missouri - Columbia

Faith Thinking Foundations: Online Religious (Meta)Literacy Education Within A Congregational Context, Rebecca Klemme Eliceiri

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract:

Online religious literacy education framed within metaliteracy in a congregational context is a little-researched topic. Congregational religious educators tend to focus more on in-person educational opportunities regarding static content and facts about religion or devotional materials and methods than providing members with the educational processes, tools, and framework needed to explore their faith questions and other theological and religious topics for lifelong learning from an integrative critical-devotional perspective. Available literature within the subject area of online religious and theological education generally focuses on the educational endeavors of seminarians, clergy, and students within K-12 educational institutions, thus leaving unaddressed the ...

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Kent State University

Abstract:

From its inception, cinema has been used to portray the information seeking and dissemination practices of clergy and, by extension, to present perspectives on religion and religious organizations. Initially fairly simplistic, these depictions of priests, ministers, rabbis, and nuns have become more sophisticated over time, keeping pace ...


Ever Learning, But Never Coming To A Knowledge Of The Truth? Religious Polling And Information Centers, Larry Poston, Linda Poston 2015 Nyack College

Ever Learning, But Never Coming To A Knowledge Of The Truth? Religious Polling And Information Centers, Larry Poston, Linda Poston

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract

In our information-saturated world, it is appropriate to ask how religious communities use data that has been gathered by reputable research and/or poll-taking organizations. Perhaps a more pertinent question would be whether religious communities do, in fact, use such information – or whether they deliberately ignore the discoveries of information-gathering groups. Do religious groups who have adopted a “Moses/Christ/Muhammad Against Culture” approach to their surroundings (borrowing H. Richard Niebuhr’s classic paradigm) tend to go their own way despite the sociological and demographic information made available to them? Would the various “Moses/Christ/Muhammad Of Culture” groups ...

What Aspects Of A Religion Influence Its Information Landscape?, Timothy Gorichanaz 2015 Drexel University

What Aspects Of A Religion Influence Its Information Landscape?, Timothy Gorichanaz

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

Abstract: Advances in technology allow for new modes of access to both secular and religious information. Historically, some religious groups seem to have been eager to acknowledge technological developments, while others have done so reluctantly. Nevertheless, the sustainability of a religious tradition depends on the ability of its practitioners to continually access information in an evolving world. Modern technology has occasioned such innovations as online religious communities and the wide availability of sacred texts and exegeses, to the extent that a person can practice a religion using entirely online tools—without ever setting foot in a physical place of worship ...


In Search Of A Tradition: A Textual Criticism Of Orphic Texts, Shellie A. Smith 2015 Kent State University

In Search Of A Tradition: A Textual Criticism Of Orphic Texts, Shellie A. Smith

Annual Conference on Information and Religion

The Orphic (and to a lesser extent, Bacchic) mystery tradition are unique among ancient Greco-Roman cults. Whereas mainstream Greco-Roman cults were sanctioned by the state, with rituals that followed a set format of sacrifice and feasting, the Orphic tradition was a secret initiatory tradition, with written rituals relying heavily on sacred texts. The Orphic tradition is also unique in that, rather than operating out of specific temples, it has no center of worship. Rather, itinerant priests traveled from location to location with their holy books, seeking individual worshippers. Because they traveled to different locations, the tradition is eclectic, as the ...

Shooting In Ferguson, Donald Roth 2015 Dordt College

Shooting In Ferguson, Donald Roth

Faculty Work

"In the past year, the nation’s attention has been repeatedly drawn back and forth from Ferguson to New York City as events in the two cities have had an eerie and disturbing resonance with one another. From an officer-involved death that set off controversy in Ferguson to one in New York, from a no indictment in one city to one in the other, and, now, tragically, the ambush killing of two officers in New York has been echoed in the ambush shooting (thankfully not fatal) of two officers in Ferguson."

Are The Fcc's "New" Regulations Really An "Obamacare For The Internet"?, Donald Roth 2015 Dordt College

Are The Fcc's "New" Regulations Really An "Obamacare For The Internet"?, Donald Roth

Faculty Work

"A few days ago, news services everywhere were abuzz with news about the Federal Communication Commission’s (FCC) new “Net Neutrality” regulations. While many internet sources have been advocating for this concept for a while now, recent coverage has increased not only because of decisive action by the FCC but also because of a rising tide of criticism and outcry, particularly from Republican politicians and commentators."

Imaging The Kingdom: The Intersection Of Religion And Violence, Donald Roth 2015 Dordt College

Imaging The Kingdom: The Intersection Of Religion And Violence, Donald Roth

Faculty Work

"All religions must grapple honestly with issues of violence, both in terms of the limits and means of righteous zeal and in terms of the ultimate goals of the movement. One potentially instructive way for the monotheistic religions to do this may be to ask the question “How do we imagine the Kingdom of God?”
