Title: From Icons to Explainer Videos: Seeking Christ in media res
Presenter and Affiliation: Chase Mitchell, Ph.D., East Tennessee State University
Date and Time: Friday, October 15, 7 pm EST
Description: The Bible Project is a nonprofit animation studio that uses explainer videos—a relatively new genre of digital media—to explore scriptural genres, characters, and themes. The videos have been viewed over 100 million times and TBP has been featured in Christianity Today. In this webinar, I relate media theory to Church history and doctrine; discuss The Bible Project’s videos in this context; and suggest a digital theology that accounts for media’s sacramental, liturgical, and exegetical functions.
