On 14 October 2019, Professor Tariq Modood, professor of Sociology at the University of Bristol will give a lecture on Accommodating Religious Diversity in Secular Institutions.

During the lecture, Professor Modood will discuss how, as religious diversity increasingly becomes a feature of countries like Britain, it is clear that religion is not just diversifying, but is changing. How academics, politicians and organizations – including universities – are having to re-think the place of religion in secular institutions.

Discussant: ISS Senior Lecturer Helen Hintjens

This seminar is organized by ISS Diversity and Inclusion Team (D&I) Seminar Series 'Plural Bodies, Accessibility and Social Justice in Academia'. This seminar is part of a series of events that the ISS D&I Team is organizing  throughout September-December 2019 under the theme Accessibility/Stand up for Diversity!

We aim to promote greater awareness regarding the physical, cognitive and institutional environment in ISS and how this affects a range of differently abled-bodied members of our community. Our aim is to identify what we are doing right, and what can be done better, institutionally and individually in order to cater for people (learners, teachers and others) with differently able bodies, experiencing various forms of functional impairment.
