Visiting Associate Professor of Religious Studies S. Brent Rodriguez Plate was recently made a continuing columnist for Religion Dispatches, a publication funded through the Ford Foundation. Religion Dispatches, according to its Web site, "is a daily online magazine dedicated to the analysis and understanding of religious forces in the world today, highlighting a diversity of progressive voices and aimed at broadening and advancing the public conversation."

Plate's column is titled "Pop-Eye," which he says, "provides commentary on the latest trends and games, videos and films that matter to religion. And how and why religion matters to popular culture." His first entries there include "Meat The Wrestler" (on the Aronofsky film starring Mickey Rourke), and "Global Jesus on Film" (an international look at Jesus films made outside Hollywood).
