Drawing on findings from the £12m Religion and Society research programme, Professor Linda Woodhead will demonstrate how significantly religious identity has changed in Britain since the 1980s, explaining why new, fluid forms of identity now exist alongside stricter ‘mono-identities,’ and discussing the broader significance of these developments for politics and public life.
The event is free to attend and tickets are available from http://6nov-tellingthetruth.eventbrite.co.uk/
