Researching Quakers: the history of ‘Quaker studies’

10th February 2021 - 10th February 2021
4:00 pm - 5:00 pm


This is the first of five sessions running throughout 2021 on the processes of academic Quaker research and some of its most recent findings. This first session traces the history of modern academic work on Quakerism starting in the 1870s and coming up to the present day. It considers the changing nature of the work undertaken and the division between work done for other Quakers and that done primarily for the academy.
