What can Religious Studies tell us about studying? Restrain and celebration

< Back to Event

Religious festivals involve a range of social practices. From having an annual drink with acquaintances before Christmas, office parties, spending money on gifts and eating a weeks’ worth of food in a day, and ideally fitting in all that study, juggling demands can be difficult. In this session, we think about what these religious festivals might add, and how restraint during Lent or Ramadan, followed by festivities, are different to things like dry January. Taking ideas of restraint and celebration and applying those to study, this session will give you some space to think about potential gains vs time, acknowledging success, and when discipline can be useful in your studies.
