Virtual Center on New Media, Religion & Digital Culture

Thanks to a small grant from my university's Digital Humanities program I am in the process of starting a Virtual Center for the Study of New Media, Religion and Culture. The aim is to create an online, interactive resource center for scholars and students working in this interdisciplinary area. In an effort to best meet the needs of researchers I have developed an online survey to gather thoughts on the design and development of this center. I would be grateful if you could take a few minutes to fill this out at: Click here to take survey.

Also in case you did not know I have started a facebook group as a precursor to this center, so if you are interested you can also check this out on facebook groups under "New Media, Religion and Digital Culture"
