Abstract This paper examines some of the reasons for the recent emergence of religion as a cultural and political influence, and why religion has been largely overlooked within media industries and by media studies academies. It outlines some of the rethinking and new directions in research that have been taking place in recent decades, arguing that the separation of media studies and religion studies in the academy can no longer be justified, practically or theoretically.
