Unruly souls

peterson-unrulyIn her new book, Unruly Souls: The Digital Activism of Muslim and Christian Feminists (Rutgers University Press, 2022), Boston College Assistant Professor of Communication Kristin Peterson explores how those marginalized from traditional religious spaces–due to their sexuality, gender, or race–employ the creative tactics of digital media to seek justice and to display their fundamental equality in the eyes of God. Through an analysis of various digital projects from hip-hop music videos and Instagram accounts to Twitter hashtags and podcasts, Peterson argues digital spaces facilitate intersectional feminist activism within Evangelical Christian and Muslim American communities and beyond. Peterson is also the author of book chapters and articles in publications such as Journal of Media, Religion, and Digital Culture and Critical Studies in Media Communication.
