Religion & Brands

“A religion is a unified system of beliefs and practices relative to sacred things, … beliefs and practices which unite into one single moral community called a Church, all those who adhere to them”

Emile Durkheim, The Elementary Forms of Religious Life (1912)

So the dissertation’s almost done. Due in a week today (which is also my birthday – what a present that is), hence the library-esque silence around here recently. During the writing process I’ve uncovered a veritable cornucopia of material for the blog that should keep me going right up until the summer, so there’s all that to look forward to (ha!).

And the quote above is my opening gambit, from the man who’s inspired the work. He’s a bit of a legend. More on him later.

I will of course be posting the final work for ritual abuse once it’s done. For open-source comedy purposes only, you understand.
