Rachel Wagner, associate professor of philosophy and religion
Wagner wrote an article for the online news site Religion Dispatches about the role that technology plays in modern life and how we are impacted when we no longer have that technology, such as in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. “Perhaps it was this same drive for imaginative entry into other-worlds that drove many Manhattanites, even when power was lost and showers were scarce, to celebrate Halloween anyway and resolutely take their children trick-or-treating. Even without the lights on, even without instant access to our media-powered story-worlds, we still need to imagine the supernatural,” she wrote. “We need our stories, our other-worlds, our costumes, our role-play. We need our dreams.”
