For a long time, religion wasn’t a topic of concern on our screens and stages. In the past few years, that’s changed—but it doesn’t look like most people were expecting it to. Why are we suddenly obsessed with religion?

ADM’s 2017 Visiting Fellow, New York writer, critic and scholar Alissa Wilkinson, will take a tour through contemporary pop culture, uncovering the religious questions at the heart of our movies and TV shows.

Proudly supported by Centre for Public Christianity (CPX).
