In Conversation

Our ‘In Conversation’ events began as a series of free virtual seminars bringing researchers and teachers together through conversation on topics linked to RExChange 2020. In each session the researcher gives a very brief summary of a key piece of research and the host invite participants to ask questions, provide feedback and comment. The ongoing themes connect to a range of research topics of interest to all those working in the field of Religion and Worldviews.

Autumn 2020 Series: RExChange Themes, in particular researcher-teacher engagement and interaction.

Spring 2021 Series: Religion and Worldviews

Summer 2022 Series: The lived reality of the religion and worldviews landscape – sociological perspectives
