NEW PODCAST: Refugees and Migrants

Apply Now for NEW Online Course: Gender and Religion Today

8th February 2021

The Woolf Institute is delighted to announce that applications are now open for its new online course, Gender and Religion Today.

Taking an interdisciplinary and comparative approach, the course will examine the historical, theological, social and legal transformations in the ways gendered identities are constructed, practiced and negotiated in religious settings.

Dr Lea Taragin-Zeller, whose research project Religious Sisterhood: Encounters of Gender, Religion and Belonging in the UK has inspired this course, comments 'Gender is an especially salient feature of religion. In many parts of the world, and in many religious traditions, cultural and religious continuity is deeply connected to gendered and sexual practices. Because gender and religion intersect on such a basic level, it is crucial to understand them together'.

The application deadline has been extended to 28 March 2021 for the course commencing 5 April 2021.

Bursaries are available. The Woolf Institute is grateful for the generous support of The Spalding Trust in providing The Spalding Trust Bursaries
