Morlan-Pantyfedwen Annual Lecture

In 1961, the benefactor of the James Pantyfedwen Foundation instituted a series of annual DJ James Lectures on religious topics. The Trustees continued this tradition, although the Lecture was later delivered on a biennial basis. It was presented alternately in Welsh and English and delivered periodically at university venues in North and South Wales. Since 2015 however, this Annual Lecture has been organised in collaboration with the Morlan Centre for Faith and Culture in Aberystwyth, and is known as the 'Morlan-Pantyfedwen Lecture'. It will continue to be given alternately in Welsh and English, and held at the Morlan Centre every year. A full list of previous Lectures is given below. 

The 2020 Morlan Pantyfedwen Lecture
The 2020 Lecture will be delivered on Monday evening 16 November 2020 at 7.30pm. Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, this lecture will be delivered on Zoom. It is entitled Understanding Young Millennials: Values, Identities and Belonging 

The lecturere will be Professor Linda Woodhead, from the University of Lancaster.

Professor Linda Woodhead is an academic specialising in religious studies and the sociology of religion. She is best known for her work on religious change since the 1980s, and for initiating public debates about faith, and has been described by Matthew Taylor, head of the Royal Society of Arts, as "one of the world's leading experts on religion". She is always “fascinated in how people’s beliefs shape their lives, how different those beliefs can be, and how and why they change over time.” Linda Woodhead has studied neo-Hinduism, Christianity, spirituality, and Islam in Europe, and her work has examined the changing forms of Christianity, the growth of alternative spiritualities, gender, sexuality, power and religion, the rise of ‘no religion’ and the values and beliefs of the ‘nones’. In her lecture, she will share some of the research findings of a recent research project undertaken to look specifically at the values of the postmillennial generation, and how those values influence their lives and the communities of today.
