Public lectures, seminars, workshops

We host a variety of different events each year, including research seminars with external and internal speakers, round-table discussions, workshops, and public lectures. We frequently collaborate with other research centres, non-profit making organisations, and cultural producers. 

Forthcoming events: 

Interfaith Lecture 2021: Solidarity and Jewish-Muslim Dialogue 

Professor Yulia Egorova in conversation with Dr Aiman Alzetani and Dr Brian Klug. 

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. 

This event is organised jointly with The Parkes Institute. Click here to book a place.
