How has austerity impacted people in the UK? What are the implications of this for theology and faith-based social action? 18 months into the Life on the Breadline research, this one-day conference grapples with these questions with a particular focus on Christian responses to UK poverty and austerity.
There will be two keynote speakers at this event: Human geographer Dr Sarah Marie Hall from the University of Manchester speaking on the unequal impact of austerity from her recently published everyday austerity ethnography, and theologian Professor Rachel Muers from the University of Leeds speaking on Christian social action and class.
