At a time when the public role of the University is under increasing scrutiny, how can we ensure that research and teaching about religions reaches new publics? What can we do to enhance religious literacy both within and beyond religious and non-religious communities? How is ritual and performance involved in communication between religious communities, the academy, policy makers and the broader public? Are there ways in which we can learn from the past in better understanding such channels of communication?

Fragments by Laura Swift and Russell Bender

Fragments is a work-in-progress performance inspired by the surviving scraps of papyrus that are all we have left of a "lost" play from ancient Greece found by archaeologists in Egypt. These tattered lines and jumbled dialogue offer tantalising snapshots of a story. Fragments will use this as a jumping off point to explore how we piece our world view together from small scraps of information, leap to conclusions and are often blind to things that don't fit in with how we see the world.
