Engagement in the Study of Religion: Impressions of a Research Day

Research day on Public, Political and Religious Engagement in the Study of Religion.

On 8 June 2017, the Centre for Religion and Public Life held a research day on Public, Political and Religious Engagement in the Study of Religion. The research day was intended to provide space for collaborative and critical discussion about the role of engagement in the study of religion and how to negotiate the multiple, blurred lines between academic research, activism, personal identity and public life. It did not disappoint as we were treated to a variety of talks which challenged us to question these very intersections and rethink the study of religion in an increasingly public and politicised academy. Please read the impressions of the research day by our MA student Jodie Salter on the CRPL blog.
