Off to the NSRN conference in Oxford

Off to the NSRN conference in Oxford December 9, 2009

This Friday sees the launch conference of the Non-religion and Secularity Research Network. I’ll be toddling off there tomorrow evening, and I’m going to try live-blogging the event via my Nokia N97. So stay tuned on Friday!

Here’s the keynote lectures, to give you a flavour:

  • Is it risky to be an unbeliever? Gender, risk and religiosity: A critique
    Colin Campbell (University of York)
  • On the receiving end: Discrimination toward the non-religious in the U.S.
    Ryan Cragun (University of Tampa)
  • Who are the non-religious in Britain and where do they come from?
    David Voas (University of Manchester)

And you can take a look at the full programme here. There’s a really marvellous faculty and range of presentations. I’m really looking forward to it!

Anyway, if anyone has any burning questions they’d like fired at any of the speakers, let me know via the comments now or on the day, and I’ll see if I can punt them.
