Abstract

This chapter responds to a range of contemporary debates in the field of religion, spirituality and secularism in books published between 2011 and 2012, it is divided into five sections: 1. Introduction; 2. Secularism; 3. Religion, Media and Culture; 4. Religion and Popular Culture; 5. Religion and the Visual Arts. Many of the books discussed here are edited volumes of papers that resulted from funded workshops or conferences. Research in religion can be split into different areas that include the study of religious traditions in themselves, which overlaps with theological concerns, and the sociological and ‘lived’ study of religions that examines the role of religion and spirituality in life and cultural practices. This chapter examines the latter strand, where the concepts of religion, the spiritual and the secular, all of which are ‘multidimensional phenomena’ (Norris and Inglehart [2011] p. 40), are brought into question.
