How do People Lose Religion?

Professor Callum Brown, who teaches at the University of Galsgow in Scotland was one of our outstanding speakers at the Common Ground dialogue conference among humanists and religious believers. This is how he describes himself:

"I am a social and cultural historian with special research interests in the social and cultural history of religion and secularisation, the social history of modern humanism, and the history of community ritual, all in the post 1750 period and more especially in the 20th and 21st centuries. I look most closely at Scotland and Britain, but also increasingly at Canada, USA and Ireland. I also have special interests in historical theory (postmodernism), personal testimony (using oral history and autobiography), in quantitative methods, and in the cultural history of Britain in the twentieth century (with special focus on the 1960s). I research, publish and teach in most of these areas and methods."

Here is a video presentation of the same lecture he gave at our conference: HOW DO PEOPLE LOSE RELIGION?
