Faculty Bookwarming with Monica Miller, Mar. 19

March 15, 2013

Join the Lewis & Clark Bookstore Tuesday, March 19 at 3:30 p.m. to celebrate Visiting Assistant Professor for Religious Studies Monica Miller’s book Religion and Hip Hop.

No stranger to the “odd, deviant, and outcast,” Monica R. Miller, Ph.D. has turned her passion for understanding all things “marginal and pop” into a lifelong career of researching some of the most pressing social issues today. Breaking the mold on traditional scholarship, Miller reconciles the once deemed strange relationship between the “sacred” and the “profane” in popular culture, and addresses why and how religion is being remade in contemporary society.

Currently, Professor Miller is working on a large scale research project entitled Remaking Religion: Youth Culture and the Remaking of Religion in Portland, Oregon as well as the book Blacklandia: The Subtleties of Race in Portland.

Light refreshments will be served during this event.
