Room S-2.08, Strand Building, Strand Campus, King’s College London, WC2R 2LS

Delivered by Professor James A. Beckford FBA (University of Warwick)

The second FD Maurice lecture amplifies the professor’s social constructionist perspective by showing how far it can throw light on some of the intriguing and challenging issues that arise when prisons provide inmates with opportunities to practise their faith.  Comparisons between the provisions made in England & Wales, France and Canada will help to sharpen the focus on what counts not only as religion but also as acceptable religion.

Although this lecture forms part of a series, each of the lectures stands alone and attendance for all three nights is not required.
