Professor Kate Adams is Director of Research and Knowledge Exchange and Professor of Education and Childhood at The University of Winchester, UK.
Kate’s main interests lie in children’s spiritual experiences. She is author of Unseen Worlds: looking through the lens of childhood, which explores the realms of children’s lives which are often hidden from adults’ view. These include ‘imaginary’ companions, angels, dreams, seeing deceased relatives as well as the more frightening realms of nightmares and the unexplained. Kate is keen to understand experiences through the children’s eyes and to support adults in appreciating how children feel. She has a particular interest in children from no-faith background.
Kate is also co-author of The Spiritual Dimension of Childhood with Brendan Hyde and Richard Woolley, as well as the author of other books and over 50 peer-reviewed outputs. Kate has been presenting her research findings internationally for 20 years and continues to be available to speak at conferences.
