Lecture

Rebels with a Cross: Christian Metal and Punk Subcultures
Eileen Luhr

Location: Cobb Hall Room 402 (down the hall from the gallery)
Admission: free
 

Luhr specializes in contemporary Christian youth culture. Her 2004 PhD. dissertation, Witnessing Suburbia: Christian Conservatives, 'Family Values', and the Politics of Youth, examined the ways in which conservative religious beliefs helped reshape the political and cultural landscape of the late Twentieth Century. She was a 2005-2006 Kevin Starr Postdoctoral Fellow in California Studies at the Univeristy of California Humanities Research Institute where she continued to research her interest in the history of religion, youth culture, and the rise of sunbelt conservatism.
This talk will be preceded by a 45 minute sampling of Christian punk and heavy metal.
