About the Author:

Mia Lövheim is a professor in Sociology of Religion based in the Faculty of Theology at Uppsala University, Sweden.


"Within the increasingly sophisticated literature on religion and media, theories and issues of gender have not previously received sustained attention. This book will be a landmark resource in helping those researching and studying in this field to think about how understandings of gender might inform their questions, methods and analysis."- Gordon Lynch, University of Kent, UK

"This collection is a terrific corrective, reminding us how often gender is marginalized even in contemporary writings on religion. Cogent overview chapters on theory and method set the stage for a rich range of articles that cover experiences across diverse media. The interdisciplinary range promises to appeal to a wide range of readers." - Faye Ginsburg, New York University, USA

"This book provides a thoughtful and timely introduction to an oft overlooked area by presenting a nuanced overview of the ways gender structures religious identities, traditions and representations within media cultures. Lövheim offers a clear and much needed critical reflection on what gender and feminist studies has to offer those who seek to explore issues of community, identity and power in relation to religious communities and media. She lays out a fruitful research agenda for current and future scholars." - Heidi A. Campbell, Texas A&M University, USA
