Call for Papers: Religion and Secularism on Campus: The Changing Dimensions of the University Experience

I am writing on behalf of the research team for the Re/presenting Islam on Campus – a three-year research project funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) that explores the complexities of lived experience, representation and perception of Islam on UK university and higher education campuses. As we near the end of the project we have organised a conference that aims to engage with cutting-edge research that explores diverse religious and non-religious identities on campus, how these are ‘lived’ on campus and how these are dealt with in university policy, practice, management and curricula.

Please can you share our CFP with your mailing list. Brief details for the conference are as follows:

Title: Religion and Secularism on Campus: The Changing Dimensions of the University Experience
