Using the theoretical framework of ‘memory’, Dr Starkey (Associate Professor at the University of Leeds) presented her work on the religious heritages of minority faith communities in England through a detailed analysis of the buildings they inhabit. She specifically focused on empirical research she conducted on Buddhist buildings. Dr Starkey provided a visually stimulating presentation on how Buddhist communities in England engage in heritage construction and memory transmission through the built environment. Dr Starkey focused particular attention on gender and explored the under-valued role that women have played in the development of minority faith spaces.
