For reasons perhaps of prejudice, perspective and communal difference, oral historians have largely neglected the topic of belief and non belief. This conference will aim to redress this within an interdisciplinary context. Going beyond studies which have focused on those with religious conviction, oral history offers the possibility to move debate outside the confines of institutionalised religion both conceptually and practically, pushing the boundaries of what is meant by belief. Indeed it offers the ideal approach to understanding manifestations of belief and secularism at an individual level while tracking their relationship to shifting expressions of broader cultural norms and the conferment of identity.
