Jeff Sharlet: The Revealer will be taking a short break from blogging for a few weeks, but we’ll continue to publish longer features above. With the end of the school year, we’re winding down the original grant the Pew Charitable Trusts that gave us life. The Revealer will continue, but in somewhat different form. I’ll be thinking about what that’ll be and how to do it in the coming weeks. I’ll also be writing syllabi — as of this fall, I’ll be teaching two Revealer-related graduate courses for New York University’s Center for Religion and Media, through the Department of Journalism and the Religious Studies Program. The future shape of The Revealer will be linked to those courses. Another important change for The Revealer: Kathryn Joyce, who’s been managing editor for the last year-and-a-half, is finished with her time at The Revealer. We wish we could keep her, but the grant only extends this far. She has been integral to the growth and identity of The Revealer, and we wish her the best. We also wish her fulfilling work, and we hope Revealer readers may be able to point her in some promising directions. Kathryn earned her masters degree in journalism here at NYU this past winter. And she’s proven here on The Revealer that she is a very fine journalist and a thinker. Please contact us if you have suggestions for her, workwise. Here’s a collection of some of her best Revealer essays, in addition to “Fade to Center,” above: “We See Empire”; “TV News to Believers: Behave!”; “The Last Man on Earth: A Romance”; “Facts, Faith, and ‘The Jesus Factor'”; and “Godzilla, Born Again.”
