Abstract

The centrality of the visual, experiential, sensory, and performative in African and African diasporic religions practically demands that educators incorporate multimedia resources when teaching about these religions, especially to undergraduate populations that may have very little personal experience with peoples of African descent. While older technologies like documentary film and video are important resources, new digital technologies and interactive websites have expanded the repertoire of multimedia resources available to teachers and scholars. This round table of essays provides a forum where those actively involved in teaching about Africana religions share their experiences with developing pedagogic materials and innovative strategies that incorporate multimedia resources (audio, video, music, images, dance, performance, websites, podcasts, YouTube, and so on) in the classroom.
