Event description

Description

This colloquium seeks to re-envision the circumstances of Jews and Muslims living in the modern era by reconstructing the myriad ways that social, cultural, political, and economic relationships were ordered, and by shedding light on their “reordering” in modernity.

The Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies’ 2018–19 fellowship year has been focused on Jewish life in modern Islamic contexts and culminates by welcoming this interdisciplinary group of scholars to examine these themes while deliberately “disordering” prevailing paradigms, geographies, and categories that have governed the study of Jews in the modern Middle East and North Africa and beyond.

This event is intended for fellows, Penn and regional faculty and graduate students, and invited guests only.
