London School of Economics: NEW PROGRAMME FOR THE STUDY OF RELIGION & NON-RELIGION + EVENTS

The Programme, based in the Department of Anthropology, and supported by the LSE Annual Fund, aims to bring together staff and research students from across LSE, and within the wider academic and policy communities, working on issues to do with religion, secularism, and “non-religious” practices, beliefs, and traditions.

The Forum on Religion is becoming part of the new Programme for the Study of Religion and Non-Religion and will continue to host public lectures and an interdisciplinary seminar series.

For more information on the Programme, visit http://www2.lse.ac.uk/anthropology/research/PRNR/Home.aspx

or contact Dr Matthew Engelke at m.engelke@lse.ac.uk

We will continue to advertise Forum on Religion events through this mailing list.
