CRPL Seminar Series

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.

Unless stated differently, all seminars will take place from 11.30am-1pm in Seminar Room 1.03, Botany House at Leeds University. Please contact Research Intern, Hollie Gowan at if you have any queries about attending upcoming seminars.
