Described as a ‘city of religions’, religion is an everyday part of today’s Birmingham. As part of this year’s ESRC Festival of Social Science, social scientists from the University of Birmingham will be going out across the city to engage members of the public in ‘conversations’ about religion and what impact is has on the city. Taking place over five days across five different locations, those conversations will focus on a number of different topics including identity, education, gender, security and the media. Building on a series of similar events from 2013 (see, ‘conversations’ provide a new and innovative format for sharing social science research in non-expert settings through breaking down the barriers that have traditionally existed between the general public and academics.
