"The Initiative for the Study of Material and Visual Cultures of Religion (MAVCOR) is characterized by its subjects of inquiry—material and visual cultures of religions—and by the form of activity it promotes: scholarly, collaborative, interdisciplinary, and international. It is about the study of the religious lives of things (pictures, objects, monuments, buildings, spaces, for example). It directs attention to the pressures of secularization theory on past and present material practices and ideas about them. MAVCOR is equally committed to multiplying ways of being in conversation, of sharing information, and of producing knowledge about these topics. We intend this work, shared in books, articles, conferences, courses, interviews, exhibitions, lectures, film series, and web-based visual and textual resources, to be substantive, critical, provocative, and accessible."
