Welcome to a Very Short Introduction soapbox. A short talk lasting 15 minutes from an expert in the field. The talk is free and takes place in Blackwell’s Marquee, next to the Sheldonian Theatre.

Religious studies professor Ian Reader looks at how pilgrimage has changed over the centuries, explaining how it has become a way of expressing social identity and cultural identity and how it has become entwined with entertainment and tourism. Why does pilgrimage remain popular in an increasingly secular age? Reader is professor of religious studies at Lancaster University.
