Religious Symbolism and Discrimination: Academic and Faith Perspectives.  On 25-26 May, CJS honorary research fellow Harry Lesser will be contributing to this two day workshop which, as part of the Arts-and-Humanities Research Council’s 'Connected Communities' programme, aims to reassess the relationship between religion and symbolism as this affects religious discrimination cases. In particular, it will examine the specific question of when, if ever, it should be permissible to discriminate against the wearing or exhibition of religious symbols. Venue: Foresight Centre, University of Liverpool. Further information.
