30th March 2020

There is a conference fee of £15, and places are limited so please register in advance through Eventbrite

Registration is now open for the Life on the Breadline Conference: Faith-Based Activism in Austerity Britain

How has austerity impacted people in the UK? What are the implications of this for theology and faith-based social action? 18 months into the Life on the Breadline research, this conference grapples with these questions with a particular focus on Christian responses to UK poverty and austerity.  In addition to presentations from the Life on the Breadline team, we are pleased to announce two keynote speakers: Human geographer Dr Sarah Marie Hall from the University of Manchester speaking on the unequal impact of austerity from her recently published everyday austerity ethnography, and theologian Professor Rachel Muers from the University of Leeds speaking on Christian social action and class.

The workshop will take place at the Simulation Centre, Coventry University. This is a short walk from Coventry train station and nearby bus stops. There is no public car parking at the venue, but public car parks can be found nearby.

Tea and coffee will be available from 9.30am, and the conference will start at 10am.
