Christopher G. White is Professor and Chair of Religion at Vassar College. White received his PhD in Religious Studies from Harvard University, where he studied religion and culture in modern Europe and America. He is particularly interested in religion and science, spirituality and “unchurched” religion, new religious movements, electronic media and popular culture. Other Worlds: Spirituality and the Search for Invisible Dimensions (Harvard University Press) examines how the idea that the universe has multiple, invisible dimensions has inspired science fiction, fantasy novels, films, modern art, and all manner of spiritual thought reaching well beyond the realm of formal religion. Drawing on a range of international archives, White analyzes how writers, artists, filmmakers, televangelists, and others have used the scientific idea of invisible dimensions to make supernatural phenomena such as ghosts and miracles seem more reasonable and make spiritual beliefs possible again for themselves and others.
