NEW PODCAST LIVE NOW Reflecting on the Good Friday Agreement

#WoolfWatch Week Fourteen

Published June 24, 2020 by Tara Zammit

As we are now working or staying at home during this time of isolation and social distancing, we thought it would be nice to share a list of some of our home entertainment recommendations. We are calling this new series #WoolfWatch. Make sure to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn for more updates in the coming weeks and welcome to Week Fourteen!

We send our best wishes to you all at this time and hope you enjoy our series.


How did people negotiate different languages and alphabets? How was knowledge disseminated between communities? What can we learn from multilingual correspondence? We addressed these questions and more in this first webinar organised by the Society for the Medieval Mediterranean, facilitated by the Woolf Institute, which explored how medieval people around the Mediterranean communicated across religious and cultural boundaries. Make sure to check out our Upcoming Events page for details on future webinars.


In the absence of the Glastonbury Festival, Naked Reflections takes time to contemplate the mysteries of music in What Makes Music?, this week's podcast recommendation. How does music make us feel? Can it be used as a political tool? Joining Ed Kessler to take to the virtual Pyramid Stage are Dr Merav Rosenfeld-Hadad, Danielle Padley and David Perry. Listen and subscribe for new weekly episodes here.


Where do interfaith relations and the Civil Rights movement meet? Zuzana Barakova explores the friendship of Martin Luther King Jr and Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel in this week's blog recommendation, writing, 'they did not merely preach interfaith, they lived it'. You can read Zuzana's blog here. Interested in writing a blog of your own? Email with your thoughts - we'd love to hear from you.


This week's Research recommendation is the new project, Antisemitism Online. The Woolf Institute is conducting a study of antisemitism in partnership with two leading British Jewish organisations: the Antisemitism Policy Trust (whose members form the Secretariat of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Antisemitism) and the Community Security Trust.
