We are delighted to invite you to take part in an online interdisciplinary symposium which builds and expands upon the AHRC funded project Ritual Reconstructed: challenges to disconnection, division and exclusion in the Jewish LGBTQI+ community (a project which ran between 2014-16 with intermittent ‘pop-up’ events in the years since).

For 2020, we present: Ritual Reconstructed Revisited: continuity and signalling the future.

Half-day panels and events will take place on the 15th (am); 16th (pm) and 17th (am) December. The full programme is available here. Further information is available on our website; by following us on Twitter or by emailing us.
