Parkes Institute Inter Faith Lecture
Tuesday 16 November 18.00 – 19.30
Lecture Theatre C, Avenue Campus, University of Southampton, Highfield Road, Southampton, SO17 1BF
Drawing on her anthropological work with initiatives in Muslim-Jewish dialogue in the UK, Yulia Egorova will talk about how the participants in these initiatives conceptualise the commonalities and particularities of their communities’ experiences. In this presentation and in conversation with Brian Klug and Aiman Alzetani, she will suggest that her interlocutors from inter-faith groups productively unsettle essentialist theorizations of Jewish and Muslim identities and demonstrate a strong commitment to solidarity with each other, while also paying important analytic attention to the specificities of their Jewish and Muslim co-citizens' social histories.
