Speaking of Faith:

"During the past decade, there has been an explosion of films and television programs containing religious and spiritual themes. Mel Gibson's The Passion of the Christ was only the tip of the iceberg. As new generations of Americans work out their spiritual and religious questions, they are increasingly turning to fantasy.

"We'll explore the deeper appeal of films like Harry Potter and The Matrix, and we'll ask how fantasy in media reflects a changing spiritual imagination, especially in younger Americans."

Oh, and On the Media is rapidly becoming one of my favorite programs, as well.
