Quaker Studies is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary.
Quaker Studies feeds into and from theology, history, philosophy, politics, sociology, anthropology, womens studies, peace studies, literary studies and cultural studies. The Quaker Studies Research Association (QSRA), formed in 1992 and with an international membership of around 280, is the umbrella organisation for all those studying, teaching, researching or connected with research into one of the areas of Quaker Studies. The QSRA holds an annual conference, hosts the George Richardson Lecture, oversees the David Adshead award for new postgraduates, and publishes a Research Register each year. There is a newsletter and the fully-refereed journal, Quaker Studies, is published twice a year.
