About this item
Religious Experience and New Materialism: Movement Matters is a groundbreaking set of original essays that enlivens new materialist conversation through the theme of movement. The book explores religious experience as it relates to dance, community organizing, fecal metaphors for social solidarity, ecology and relational Christian realism, and labor issues. According to the book's new materialist analyses, needful political, social, cultural, and religious change may hinge on a more vital conception of matter, a less anthropocentric outlook, and greater attention to the material aspects of daily life. In this volume, theologians and scholars of religion criticize and refine new materialist views in order to advance debate about the role of religious experience in social and political change.
