In conversation…. Series 2020-21
This new series of virtual seminars brings researchers and teachers together through conversation about Religion and Worldviews. In each session the researcher will give a very brief summary of a key piece of research or project and invite participants to ask questions, provide feedback and comment. Each session is hosted by a teacher, adviser or member of the Culham St Gabriel’s Team.
