About this Event

Speaker: Professor Mathew Guest

Title: ‘Anxiety and Stigma in the Lives of Muslim Students: How the "Radicalisation’" Narrative Has Changed Higher Education in Britain’

Mathew Guest is Professor in the Sociology of Religion in the Department of Theology and Religion at Durham University, where he has taught since 2004. His research focuses on how universities influence the status and expression of religious identities, including the impact of the university experience on Christian and Muslim students, and the changing role of university chaplains. He is the co-author of Christianity and the University Experience: Understanding Student Faith (2013) and of Islam on Campus: Contested Identities and the Cultures of Higher Education in Britain (2020).
