Campus Crusade for Kitsch

TWU: News & Events: "'Kitsch” may be a new word for some people, but it has existed for many years. In the contemporary world it is evident in everything from “Jesus is my homeboy” T-shirts, to the commercializing of Christmas; the sentimentality of what was once sacred and meaningful replaced by cheap reproductions. This September, Trinity Western University art professor and kitsch expert Betty Spackman, released her debut book, A Profound Weakness, Christians and Kitsch, a collection of questions and discoveries from her own artistic journey which grapples with kitsch in the western world."
