The Boisi Center for Religion and American Public Life will host a luncheon colloquium featuring Boston College Associate Professor of Communication Michael Serazio who will talk about his new book, The Power of Sports: Media and Spectacle in American Culture. The event will be held Oct. 4 from noon to 1:15 p.m. at the Boisi Center. An RSVP is required. Serazio interviewed media professionals and business leaders to explore how today’s ubiquitous, $70 billion sports spectacle is crafted. In his book, he analyzes how sports culture explains and reflects life across a wide range of patterns in American culture: religious experience, technological disruption, journalistic sensationalism, economic inequality, military hawkishness, and manhood ideals.
