On December 6th 2019 Elaine Graham, Hannah Bacon and Wendy Dossett represented the Department at the AGM of TRS-UK. TRS-UK is the Professional Association for all the Departments and Units of Theology and Religious Studies, and many of the Learned Societies and Subject Associations in the UK.  Elaine is a patron of TRS-UK, and Wendy has for the last four and a half years served on the executive committee to drive the school engagement agenda.

The meeting was held at the University of Birmingham and saw heads of department or their nominees, plus guests from the world of school-based religious education, as well as journalists and creatives, come together to work collectively for the future of the field. Amongst issues for discussion were how departments can work more effectively with schools to promote the subject, how to interface more effectively with social and mainstream media to improve religious literacy, and how to address the gender imbalance in career progression in TRS.
