The 2022 annual conference of the Centre for Research in Quaker Studies (CRQS, Woodbrooke, Birmingham UK) and the Quaker Studies Research Association (QSRA) will explore the theme of Quakers and Encounters in a series of five short online sessions spread across the year.

Under this broad theme, we will consider how Quakers have interacted with the world and people around them, including their past and contemporary involvement in regional, national or global projects and networks. What were or are their experiences in such encounters? Papers will focus on a range of periods and geographical locations. Alongside this, the conference will consider how the study of Quakerism can be informed by new approaches and methodologies. The conference will include three open panel sessions and one devoted to the digital humanities. Each session will last 2 ½ hours. In May, Professor Emeritus Angus Winchester of Lancaster University will deliver the 2022 George Richardson Lecture.

The live sessions will take place on:

Thursday 7 April, 18:30-21:00 (UK time)
Thursday 12 May, 18:30-21:00 (UK time)
Thursday 9 June, 18:30-21:00 (UK time) – George Richardson Lecture
