Professor Naomi Goldenberg (University of Ottawa) gives her public lecture in London on Thursday 26 April 2012, as part of her short tour in Scotland and England.

The event, “What’s God Got to Do With It? Feminism, Religion and the State”, will be 'tweetcast' live (see below for details). The lecture and tour, which has also taken in seminars in Stirling and Aberdeen, takes place at the distinguished Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church, Covent Garden, London, at 19:00. It is sponsored by the University of Stirling Critical Religion Research Group and the religion and society think tank Ekklesia.

Simon Barrow, co-director of Ekklesia, will chair the meeting and there will be a welcome from Louise Polhill from Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church.
