Book Launch: Celebrity Worship by Pete Ward – CANCELLED
- Course Dates: Wed 4 March 2020, 7:15 pm
Unfortunately the talk tonight with Pete Ward has been cancelled.
Join us for an evening to hear Pete Ward discuss his new book, Celebrity Worship.
Providing a fascinating insight into the world of celebrity culture and religion. Using contemporary case studies, such as lifestyle television, the religious vision of Oprah Winfrey and the death of David Bowie, this book is a gripping read for those with an interest in celebrity culture, cultural studies, media studies, religion in the media and the role of religion in society.
Pete Ward is Professor of Practical Theology at Durham University, UK; NLA University College, Bergen, Norway; and MF The Norwegian School of Theology, Oslo, Norway.
This will be an evening book launch, from 7:15 pm
The event is free and open to all but booking is required firstname.lastname@example.org
