‘Marginalised Pasts: Jews and Muslims in the History of Europe’ with Professor Abigail Green

IHR Weidenfeld Lecture in Jewish History 2018

26 April 20186-8:30

British Academy, 10-11 Carlton House Terrace, St. James’s, London SW1Y 5AH

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. This lecture asks 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.
