Parkes Institute Inter Faith Lecture: Another Fateful Triangle: Jews, Muslims, Europe by Elisabeth Becker

Tuesday 14 November 18.00 – 19.30

Avenue Campus (Lecture Theatre C), University of Southampton SO17 1BF

In this talk, Elisabeth Becker invokes Stuart Hall's concept of a "fateful triangle", turning to the intersection of Jewish, Muslim, and European identities, specifically highlighting the ways in which Jewish-Muslim intersections shape European societies: both in terms of contemporary life and in terms of collective memory. This is a hybrid event, meaning you can attend in-person at Avenue Campus or online via Zoom.

Event held by The Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations, University of Southampton
