Abstract: The purpose of this investigation is to discuss American Christ Films and how the promotional strategies and cultural restraints have influenced the portrayal of Jesus. The study seeks to understand each film in the particular period that it was produced. These films have become part of the rhetorical dialogue and add to the discussion of Christianity. Six films have been selected for analyses that represent both the successes and failures of the Christ Film genre. The films selected are From the Manger to the Cross (1912), The King of Kings (1927), The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965), Jesus Christ Superstar (1973), The Last Temptation of Christ (1988), and The Passion of The Christ (2004). Using rhetorical analysis and history data, this investigation attempts to understand the ways that films about Jesus aid in spreading the message of the Gospels.

Fine by Me" vs. "Coming Out for Christ": The Role of Women's Studies on National Coming Out Day in the Bible Belt" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the National Women's Studies Association, TBA, St. Charles, IL, Pheasant Run, Jun 28, 2007 <Not Available>. 2019-08-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p170225_index.html>
Publication Type: Conference Paper/Unpublished Manuscript
Abstract: After witnessing various kinds of resistance to the National Coming Out Day festival I helped organize this fall at USC Upstate, I propose that Women’s Studies should emerge as a leader in the process of integrating GLBTQ issues into the curriculum and cultural events on campuses in the U.S. Southeast. It is up to the directors and professors of Women’s Studies to claim this antihomophobic work, and to produce a rhetoric of sexual diversity that can intervene in the culture of shame, stigma, and sexual repression that continues to characterize the dominant ideology of the Bible Belt.

Review Method: Peer Reviewed
Abstract: Since the mid 17th century, Panamanians have traveled to Portobelo, Panama to celebrate the Black Christ statue of Portobelo. Reflecting on three years of anthropological fieldwork in Portobelo, this paper examines the significance of the “Blackness” of the Black Christ to those that celebrate him. Further, this paper examines the tension around the name, “Black Christ;” a name that represents, for some, an external and racialized reference that does not truly reflect the history and cultural context of the reverence for the statue. Through interviews, archival analysis, documentary photography and video, this paper will critically examine and situate the Blackness of the Black Christ.

Abstract: This exploratory study examines how young men experienced assimilation into the missionary system of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Within the context of a theoretical framework of organizational assimilation, qualitative methodologies explore the experiences of four active, full-time missionaries. Results suggest that institutionalized and prolonged periods of anticipatory socialization provide newcomers with reasoning tools that are used to overcome roadblocks to metamorphosis.
