Events

Religion in Public plays host and publicises a variety of events that take place at the University of Leeds as well as in the city. We also publish reviews of these events in order to disseminate key discussions and findings.

We have a fortnightly seminar series where speakers from inside and outside the University of Leeds present current research on any aspect of religion that, in one way or another, intersects with public life locally, nationally or internationally. The seminars are open to all with an academic interest in the study of religion and public life. See here for upcoming seminars for 2019/20. Unless indicated otherwise, seminars take place on Thursdays 11.30am-1pm, in the Botany house seminar room (1.03) on campus.

If you would like us to publicise your research event then please contact CRPL Research Intern, Hollie Gowan at jh09hgg@leeds.ac.uk
