An interview with Stephen J. Lind, a doctoral student in Clemson’s Rhetorics, Communication, and Information Design (RCID) program, published in York County’s Herald Online, highlights his interest in portrayals of religion in the media. Lind, in his third year of the four-year program, is analyzing religious portrayals found within media using the Peanuts franchise as a case study.
As part of Lind’s research, he has visited friends and family of the late Charles Schulz, creator of the comic strip. He has had the chance to interview many of them, including Schulz’s widow, concerning Schulz’s personal religious views.
Rock Hill’s Herald chose to interview Lind concerning this project and his perceptions of Peanuts because a new exhibit is opening at the Museum of York County that features the franchise.
