Stewart Hoover and Nabil Echchaibi, The Third Spaces of Digital Religion (2012)

A discussion paper by two members of the Centre for Media, Religion and Culture at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Excerpt:

"This essay assumes that what is actually needed is a re-centering of the "object" of digital religious practice into and on its own emergent terms. And scholars and observers need to find new ways of thinking about and interpreting practice that assumes this re-centering. Our reflections on this are rooted in our own explorations in a research project focused on finding the ways and places that religion is represented, in significant ways, in media cultures."
