20 March: Lindsey Taylor-Guthartz, ‘Galleries, Guilds, and Graves: British Orthodox Women’ (with recording)

Drawing on interviews as well as on her own experience, Dr Taylor-Guthartz shared her findings of how new norms of lived religion have emerged, influenced by both the rise of feminism and the backlash against it, and also by an evolving understanding of women’s religious roles.

She received her doctorate from University College London in 2016, and Orthodox rabbinical ordination from Yeshivat Maharat, New York, in June 2021.
