In episode 51, Elizabeth Oldfield speaks to Professor of Sociology at Lancaster University Linda Woodhead. 30/10/2019
Linda is Professor of Sociology in the Department of Politics, Philosophy and Religion at Lancaster University. This year she has been in California at a fellowship at Stanford. From 2007–2012 she was Director of a 12 million pound research programme looking at religion and belief which culminated in the Westminster faith debates.
In this episode she reflects on her sacred value of being real, her difficult relationship with the Church of England and her decision to walk away from it, and why it’s so difficult to talk about God in public.
