Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme

 
NEWS: Entangled and Disentangled Otherings project awarded DAAD-Cambridge funding

Professor Esra Özyürek has been awarded the DAAD-Cambridge funding for a three-year-long series of workshops titled Entangled and Disentangled Otherings: Critical Perspectives on the Relationship of Antisemitism and Racism.

Three planned workshops will build on a workshop organized by Center for Anti-Semitism Research in Technical University, International Consortium for Research on Antisemitism and Racism, and Martin-Buber Chair for Jewish Thought and Philosophy at the Goethe University Frankfurt am Main, funded by Fritz Thyssen Stiftung and Alfred Toepfer Stiftung F.V.S. The series we will organize at Cambridge will be a collaboration between Cambridge Interfaith Programme at Divinity Faculty, Antisemitism Research Center at Technical University, Berlin, and Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism at Birkbeck University, London. It will bring together leading scholars who work on Antisemitism, Islamophobia, and other kinds of racism and discrimination, and especially those who focus on the complicated relationships among them. In our first meeting in Cambridge we will talk about what are the conditions that make alliances between activist groups possible and also difficult. The second meeting will be done with a select number of scholars who took part in the first and second workshops and will focus on a book manuscript and the third workshop will be dedicated to working on a research grant to be submitted to major research funders in the UK and in Germany
