Blogging my Religion
Through the use of “hypermediated religious spaces” theory, Evolvi’s book can be seen as an original and pioneering contribution to current multidisciplinary studies of religion as it conceptually enriches our understanding of multiple lifestyles for individuals and groups, and their performances of (non)religiosity in contemporary local and global societies.

“Blogging my Religion” is a book about how religion change in Europe often occurs in non-traditional spaces, especially digital media. The book, whose title I am extremely proud of, has been published by the Routledge Series in Religion and Digital Culture and is available on Amazon.
The book presents the theory of “hypermediated religious spaces”. You can find a summary in this post.
If you want to know more about my book but you’re driving (or cleaning, or running), here’s a podcast where I talk about it:
If your university library hasn’t ordered my book yet, here’s my Ph.D. dissertation, on which my book is partially based on:
This is my book proposal (many things changed since this proposal, but it gives you a general idea):
And these are the acknowledgements to all the wonderful people that helped me make this book possible (and, most importantly, made writing this book a fun process)
What do people think of the book? Reviews
In case you speak German, this is a book review done by Katharina Limacher, University of Vienna (I read it and I believe it’s positive, but my German isn’t flawless, so if you discover it says something negative about my book, please don’t tell me)
A nice and complete review of my book has been written by Anita Agostini, whom I haven’t had the pleasure to meet yet, for the Anthropological Journal of European Culture
My friend and colleague Rasool Akbari gives a very thorough overview of the book for the Journal of Religion, Media, and Digital Culture.
