Diagnoses and Possibilities

image of Method & Theory in the Study of Religion

This book review essay examines the practices and unconscious tendencies in the study of religion and hip-hop through a critical investigation of Monica Miller’s Religion and Hip-Hop. Miller’s work both analyzes the problematic analytics associated with the “religion as a source” method in the study of religion and illuminates alternative approaches for re-describing “the religious” in the study of hip-hop through a postmodern vocabulary. While Miller’s book makes a significant contribution to the study of religion through her study of hip-hop, it falls short of making an equally powerful contribution to the study of hip-hop generally considered.
