What is at stake in the fact that we are increasingly comfortable living in brand culture? What might be gained, and what is lost, through this kind of living? Sarah Banet-Weiser, Media@McGill Beaverbrook Visiting Scholar for fall 2012, will be discussing these questions in her examination of two religious brand cultures, Prosperity Christianity and New Age Spiritualism, in her talk, ‘I’m Like Totally Saved’: Branding Religion and the Moral Limits of the Market. Co-sponsored by Media@McGill and the Art History and Communication Studies Speaker Series, this free public lecture will be held on Tuesday, October 2, at 5:30 p.m., in Leacock 26.
