NSRN Annual Lecture 2017

Ancestor Worship amongst Today’s Unbelievers

Nonreligious people often experience, and revere, the presence of their deceased relatives. Typically described as ‘religious experience’, the uniqueness of unbelievers’ experiences of the dead are widely misunderstood. In this year’s Nonreligion & Secularity Research Network’s annual lecture Professor Abby Day (Goldsmiths, University of London) discusses new research into the ‘ancestor worship’ of British unbelievers, and asks – what do these experiences tell us about unbelief, nonreligion and the richness of human experience?

The event will be held on 15.45-17.00 Saturday 25 November 2017 at The Beaney House of Art & Knowledge (Canterbury CT1 2RA).

This event is free and open to all. Please register at the eventbrite page.

The NSRN Annual Lecture 2017 is sponsored by the Understanding Unbelief programme, and will be held as part of the Belief, Lost and Found: The Unbelief Café at the Being Human festival. Further details can be found here.
