‘Marginalised Pasts: Jews and Muslims in the History of Europe’

Posted on 12th April 2018 by Paul Carter

A free lecture with Professor Abigail Green

28 April 2018, 18.00-20.00, British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, St James’s, London SW1 5AH

Professor Abigail Green will deliver the Institute of Historical Research Weidenfeld Lecture in Jewish History 2018 examining how European history has been defined as a field by a notion of Europe – its borders, values, civilization and nationalities – that is, structured by Christianity and its secular legacies.  She will ask how thinking about the place of Jews and Muslims within the history of Europe transforms our understanding of the interface between Europe and the world, and challenges our understanding of what ‘Europe’ might mean. Abigail Green is Professor of Modern European History at the University of Oxford. She is the author of Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero (2010) which was a TLS Book of the Year and a New Republic Best Book.

The lecture is free to attend but advance registration is required. To book or for more information see: http://www.history.ac.uk/events/event/15698. Registration opens at 17.45 and the lecture will be followed by a reception.
