u2 academic fan bio note

So as an invited presenter – Sampling and reframing: the evolving live concert performances of “Bullet the blue sky” – at the May 13-15 U2 Academic conference, I need to provide a 75 word bio. At the risk of seeming a groupie, I decided it was time to nurture my “inner fan” 🙂

Hence: Steve Taylor was a Boy in Papua New Guinea, matured under Under the Blood Red Skies of New Zealand, fell in love beside a Joshua Tree and became a cheering Passenger at the births of his two daughters. He is a writer, lecturer and creator of spirituality resources. His PhD (University of Otago) analysed new forms of church in contemporary culture. He is Senior Lecturer, Laidlaw College, Senior Pastor, Opawa Baptist Church and blogs at

Today I need to go to do some work on the paper. I need to FORCE myself to go and watch Popmart and read about installation art and reframing in new media. Some days really are better than others.
