Research Seminar in Inter-Religious Relations - Prof Wendy Pullan 'Identity Museums: The Secular-Sacred Institutionalisation of Conflict Memories' Friday, 7 February 2020 1.30-3.30pm in the Lightfoot Room

You are warmly invited to attend an Inter-Religious Relations Research Seminar (preceded by a sandwich lunch in the Selwyn Room at 1pm).

Prof Wendy Pullan has sent the following summary of her talk, which will be responded to by Dr Craig Larkin (King's College London):

It is common for ethno-national and religious conflicts to be commemorated in museums. They may be conceived as part of a post-conflict and/or reconstruction effort to mark past struggles in ways that are material and didactic. In some cases, the museums are designed to present both/all sides of the conflict, but more commonly, they are established by factional groups or partisan governments as a way to justify their own cause by memorialising the suffering of their own people. This seminar will examine these issues through several different museums of national and religious struggle including those in Northern Ireland, Cyprus, Lebanon, Israel and Palestine.

Colleagues, undergraduate, MPhil and PhD students from within and outside the Faculty of Divinity are welcome.
