Herbert D. Katz Center for Advanced Judaic Studies
25th Annual Gruss Colloquium
May 5, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - May 6, 2019 @ 7:00 pm
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.
