Call For Participants – Eighth Understanding Religion and Law Workshop Thursday 30th March 2017 University of Exeter

We are pleased to announce the call for participants for the eighth Understanding Religion and Law Workshop, funded under the GW4 URL Accelerator project. The project is led by Professors Rob Gleave (Exeter), Julian Rivers (Bristol), Sophie Gilliat-Ray (Cardiff) and Dr Mustafa Baig (Exeter). More information regarding the project can be found at:

The URL project is inviting GW4-based scholars and others interested to participate in our workshop to be held on the 30th March 2017 at the University of Exeter.

We are particularly looking for presentations of two types:

  • Papers (up to 20 minutes) presenting a piece of research touching on the relationship between religion and law
  • Research Presentations outlining a project – such as a PhD topic or an as yet unfinished piece of work (up to 10 minutes)

The aim is to share our research projects, test out new ideas for research, and to explore the possibilities of collaboration across the GW4 institutions.   The workshop will, we hope, be informal and exploratory.  Please note: the URL project has funds to fund all participants’ travel, whether you make a presentation or come to comment on the research of others.

All are welcome to attend both the workshop and the lecture. Anyone travelling from outside Exeter will be entitled to expenses reimbursement. You may, if you wish, contact your institutional URL researcher
