Leicester: In the world but not of it: Keep Calm and Carry On

July 28, 2015 @ 10:00 am - July 30, 2015 @ 5:00 pm

Fandom and Religion is an international, interdisciplinary conference. The Conference will explore interactions between religion and popular culture. How does fandom work? What is happening to fans as they express their enthusiasms and allegiances? Has fandom replaced or become a form of religion? What can the study of religion learn from explorations of fandom?

I’m giving a talk on “In the World but not of it: Keep Calm and Carry On“, mixing the popularity of the Keep Calm and Carry On Poster with contemporary Christianity.
