Call for Participants

The URL project is now inviting GW4-based scholars and others interested to participate in our eighth workshop to be held 30 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. You may, if you wish, contact your institutional URL researcher:

Bath: Dr Scott Thomas

Bristol: Professor Julian Rivers

Cardiff: Professor Sophie Gilliat-Ray

Exeter: Tayyeb Mimouni

For further information, and if you would like to present a paper or research presentation, please contact Tayyeb Mimouni by Wednesday 15 March 2017.
