Sport, community and Christianity through a feminist lens: Nostalgia podcast with Dawn Llewellyn

In the latest episode of the Nostalgia podcast series Chris Deacy, Head of the Department of Religious Studies, interviews Dr Dawn Llewellyn, Senior Lecturer in Christian Studies at the University of Chester.

Chris and Dawn also discuss the importance of sport in her family and Dawn talks about the importance in her life of open water swimming which has led her to swimming the English Channel. They talk about the importance of having a counterpoint to our ‘day jobs’, and the different forms that they can take, and the importance of community. For example, Dawn talks about how her PhD looked at the way women use literature to reinforce their sense of self, and of forming communities and how a book can be a friend.
