TRS Chester was very well represented at a recent conference at Queen’s Theological Foundation, Birmingham, hosted by the Faith Lives of Women and Girls research group.  Liz Shercliff,  a DProf candidate researching women’s preaching practices and Dr Dawn Llewellyn are members of the group, and Dawn is part of the planning committee and co-organised the programme exploring the identities, experiences, practices, and beliefs of women and girls. In addition, several of our postgraduate students presented their work. Clare Dawson discussed the faith identities of working class women in urban contexts; Shona Hayes presented her current doctoral work on evangelical women’s use of fashion and modest dress; Emma Mist shared her research on The Red Tent movement in the UK;  and Grace Thomas’ paper investigated an asset-based approach to understanding the well-being of clergy women. The conference attracted researchers from the US, UK, and Europe who used a range of qualitative methodologies and methods to study some very exciting and stimulating themes!
