Quakers look to their history for inspiration and ideas – but history is not simple and it is important to understand unethical Quaker actions as well. We are seeking contributions from researchers working on these uncomfortable areas.
This seminar is primarily an opportunity for researchers to present their work. If you would like to contribute, please read our full call for contributions and contact Rhiannon Grant directly. We also welcome people interested in any aspect of Quaker history or those who are exploring related topics – power and privilege, racism, hypocrisy, prejudice, discrimination, and so on – in the present day.
The details of this event will depend on the contributions offered. We hope to have at least two sessions each of one and a half hours, live on Zoom, during the afternoon and evening (UK time). Presenters will be asked to speak for up to 20 minutes, after which we will have 10 minutes for questions and discussion before the next paper. If we receive many contributions, we may add a third session.
