Ajvatovica pilgrimage, Bosnia

Dr Safet HadžiMuhamedović and CIP have been awarded a Public Engagement Starter Fund grant for a project titled Shared Sacred Landscapes: Interfaith Dialogues in Cambridge. 

Safet will develop an exhibition of anthropological photography, a public symposium and an interactive website to further our understanding of sacred environments shared by different religious communities. To be inaugurated during the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week in 2021, the exhibition will showcase diverse examples of co-orchestrated rituals, feasts and shared sacred spaces that speak of rich historical and present-day encounters in the polities increasingly partitioned along the lines of religious identity. Building upon Safet’s ethnographic research of syncretic religion in the Mediterranean, the symposium will consider the importance of shared landscapes and their main obstacles in different contemporary contexts. The project will also establish a partnership and knowledge exchange between the Cambridge Inter-Faith Programme (CIP) and the Cambridge Central Mosque.

For further information about the project, please contact Dr HadžiMuhamedović at sh639@cam.ac.uk.
