Research Fellow, Divinity, History, Philosophy & Art History

‘Growing in Friendship’ is a 1-year project based in and funded by Lyn’s House Cambridge.  The project will research how people experience belonging to the community and its impact on their lives and faith.  Central to its approach is the commitment that members of the Lyn’s House community will be participants in the research rather than objects of it.  This will involve developing appropriate and potentially innovative methodological and practical approaches, including reflection on questions of theology and spirituality, to enable this for a mixed-ability community.
