Summary: Talk from Professor Eleanor Nesbitt on her research into interfaith families and relationships

The chaplains are pleased to host a simple lunch in the chaplaincy on Tuesday 23 November from 12.30 and look forward to welcoming Professor Eleanor Nesbitt, who will lead a talk and discussion at 1pm for about 45 minutes. All are welcome.

Eleanor Nesbitt is Professor in Religions and Education at the institute of Education here at Warwick. Her teaching and research include a focus on the religious socialisation of young Christians, Hindus and Sikhs. She is currently investigating the religious identity formation of young people in 'mixed-faith' families. Her other current research is 'Interrogating the experience of Quaker scholars in Hindu and Sikhs studies: spiritual journeying and academic engagement'.

Professor Nesbitt brings a wealth of personal experience and academic interest to the subject of identity within Inter-faith families/relationships and the chaplaincy is very grateful to her for agreeing to give a lunchtime talk on the subject during Interfaith week.
