BASR Annual Conference 2017

University of Chester, 4-6 September 2017

Thank you to all participants and speakers for an extremely successful conference, and especially thank you to our keynote speaker, Professor Ronald Hutton, who spoke on ‘Narratives of Pagan Religion’

The theme of the conference was: Narratives of religion

‘Narrative’ has emerged as valuable category of analysis in the study of religions. This conference takes narrative as its theme with a view to testing its efficacy and resilience for elucidating constructions of religion.
