RLPI Symposia adopt a case study approach to the subject matter at hand. The Symposium on Religious Literacy and Business: Media & Entertainment will focus on four case studies that engage different dimensions of the media and entertainment industry, from high-level theoretical frameworks for assessing media effects to pragmatic strategies for integrating principles of religious literacy into production.
Each of these areas offers numerous, content-rich dynamics that can provide the foundation for productive conversation and greater reflection on the benefits of religious literacy and means to cultivating it. While some general themes and questions apply to all four cases, we suggest that panelists and attendees consider the specific guiding questions below for each case. We also strongly recommend reading the Religious Literacy Project's Method in addition to the individual case studies in preparation for the symposium.
