Faculty Fellows' Lunch Featuring Jane Shaw


Jane Shaw: "How Women Remade Religion in early twentieth-century Britain." 

Influenced by feminism and other forces of social and political change, women in early-twentieth century Britain sought to participate in religious life beyond the philanthropic activities of their middle class Victorian forbears and yet were still excluded from the structures of institutional religion. This presentation explores the ways in which women as seekers, mystics and community builders remade religion in this crucial period of modernity, focusing on the interwar years. 

Jane Shaw is Dean for Religous Life and Professor of Religious Studies.

Stanford faculty are invited to join us for lunch and a discussion.  Please RSVP to Wendy Skidmore if you would like to attend.
