Recently, I talked to Jeremy Stolow. He is a media historian at Concordia University, and editor of the book, Deus In Machina: Religion, Technology, and the Things in Between. He takes on the conventional idea of religion and technology as separate, contradictory spheres, and shows instead how they're connected. Contributors to the book look at a wide range of examples, from mainstream, organized religion, to Jeremy's own look at seances and spirit communication, to explore how technology weaves its way through diverse spiritual practices.
