In October 2013, the editors of this special issue conducted an interview with Rosalind Hackett, one of the pioneering scholars in the field of media and religion. The interview took place via email and consisted of five questions that address the discussion in this special issue of Social Compass and attempt to look into the future of religion and technology studies. As African societies and their media production and reception are transforming at a high pace, the interview offers a unique opportunity to get acquainted with what, according to one of the pioneers in this exciting field, are the weaknesses, challenges and future themes in the study of religious mediation and mediatization.
