Prof. Yulia Egorova in conversation with Aiman Alzetani and Dr. Brian Klug on Solidarity and Jewish-Muslim Dialogue.
Drawing on her anthropological work with initiatives in Muslim-Jewish dialogue in the UK, Prof. Yulia Egorova (Durham University) 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 Dr. Brian Klug (Oxford University) 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.
