Minorities in Contact

23rd April, 2015 @ 09:00

St Catherine's College, Cambridge

On 23rd and 24th April 2015, the Woolf Institute and the Faculty of History, University of Cambridge, held an international conference entitled Minorities in Contact.

The conference, held at St Catherine's College, was convened by Ana Echevarria (Woolf Institute Visiting Fellow 2015) and Nora Berend (Faculty of History, University of Cambridge). It was supported by The Trevelyan Fund.

Comparative history of religious minorities across the Mediterranean is becoming more and more necessary for an understanding of the mechanisms of their definition and self-identity creation. This workshop attempts to shift the focus from the usual study of relations between minority and majority, to a more horizontal minority-minority approach, understood in a broad sense of either inter-religious relations, or intra-religious self-definitions.

Please Note: The entry date for this conference has now passed.
