Building Up - Research Capacity in "Religion & Youth in Communities" (A FaithxChange event)

An event co-hosted by Faiths and Civil Society Unit at Goldsmiths, University of London and Leeds University for Faithxchange.

FaithxChange is a network for people doing (or interested in) research with or about young people from faith traditions engaged in social action in communities.

Following a very successful first event in January this year FaithxChange is pleased to announce Event 2; Building Up - Research Capacity in "Religion & Youth in Communities". This event will be co-hosted by,and held at, Leeds University on Friday 2nd July 2010.

The day will bring together academics, policy-makers and practitioners with an interest in the field and will include presentations from across these perspectives. There will be an emphasis on the participation of young people. The main aim of the event is to build up research capacity, and its usefulness, in the field. With this in mind there will be plenty of opportunity for discussion and reflection.

If you would like to attend the event, please email Martha Shaw
(m.shaw@gold.ac.uk) by 11th June. Spaces are limited and will be allocated on a 'first come first served' basis.

You are invited to add yourself to the on-line database at www.faithxchange.org.uk. This is a  'bank' of young people interested in taking part in research about youth and faith, and more established researchers who want to work with them. Through this database you will be able to find others working on or with issues relevant to young people and faith in communities from the academic, practice and policy fields.  In order to join the database, please fill in the short on-line form.

The database will also provide resources including academic publications, MA and doctoral theses and other literature and policy documents. Students are invited to upload research theses to be shared on-line. If you would like to upload your work, please email Martha Shaw (m.shaw@gold.ac.uk)
