My name is Philip Booth, I’m a researcher at Manchester Metropolitan University, and I’m currently looking to develop partnerships with local religious communities for my project which examines the history of travel and pilgrimage to Jerusalem. For more information, you can visit the project’s website.
For the project, I’m conducting a survey and interviews with willing participants who have been to Jerusalem to learn about their experiences. My hope is that this will allow me to run some public talks about the shared history of travel to Jerusalem and the role of the people of Greater Manchester in that history (of course, at a later date). I also hope that thinking about these experiences in Jerusalem might provide a welcome distraction from everything that’s going on at the moment.
The survey can be accessed here.
Many thanks in advance.
Dr Philip Booth
