Faith in the Town, 1740-1830, John Rylands Library, University of Manchester, 17 January 2020

Submissions are invited for a one-day workshop at the John Rylands Library, University of Manchester, on Friday 17 January 2020. As part of a three-year project funded by the AHRC, the workshop will focus on ordinary people’s experiences of religion in urban areas between 1740 and 1830. We particularly welcome papers that problematise the connection between urbanisation, industrialisation and secularisation, as well as the methodology of exploring urban lay piety beyond the records left by clergy and the administrative structures of organised religion.

This postgraduate records workshop offers attendees a unique opportunity to obtain the skills and knowledge needed to undertake academic research using original records at The National Archives.

The workshop will use original records held at The National Archives. It will focus on ecclesiastical collections and the interaction between church and state, and will equip attendees with tools to help them research ecclesiastical records. During each session you will receive tuition and guidance on a range of archival research skills from our medieval records specialists, and you will also undertake practical exercises involving hands-on document work.

The CIHEC (Commission Internationale d’Histoire et d’Etude du Christianisme) International Symposium, 11-13 June 2019, University of Lyon

The purpose of this symposium is to study the links between religious
history, Church history or ecclesiastical history, and other types of
history (history of knowledge, gender history, global history, digital
history, etc.). It is a question of reflecting on the interest of crossing
the methods and concepts of these different types of history and wondering
to what extent this could lead to a renewal of religious history.
