“Muslims, Christians, and Jews: Interactions Past and Present”

October 6, 2023

9a – 2:30p

Paola Tartakoff, Chair and Professor, Department of History and Jewish Studies, Rutgers University

This seminar will explore the intertwined histories of Muslims, Christians, and Jews, with a focus on links between the past and the present. We will consider the earliest encounters between Muslims, Christians, and Jews; key developments during the medieval and early modern periods; and the modern legacies of this history. Examining dynamics ranging from peaceful coexistence and cultural cross-influence to persecution, Islamophobia, and antisemitism, we will grapple with a complex subject that is of urgent importance today.
