Robert is a Vicar of an inner city Manchester parish.  As well as chair of school governors, the demands are very varied, but high. Emphasis on work with refugees and asylum seekers. This very much fed into the course: Engagement with religions in plural society.

 Robert is also chair of a local Inter Faith group linked to the Inter Faith Network. Arranging, delivering, facilitating inter-faith workshopson current issues, e.g. the law with regard to Incitement of Racial Hatred.  Building networks for social cohesion vis-a-vis the international dimension of conflict and war impinging on local communities.

Robert's research interest has been limited for the last three years to both creating new courses and developing each one.  Religious Education taught in the Education Department and all four courses taught in the Faculty of Social Science have significant links with local Faith communities as partners in teaching and learning. Such an approach shapes the dynamics of pedagogy. This is Robert's major interest, linking as it does to the principles of Liberation Theology and the work of Paulo Freire.
