Event Details
This event unites both of our Parkes visiting fellows for 2022, who will be in conversation with each other and our audience on shared topics. We are excited to hear from both of our visiting fellows and the dialogue that is clearly possible from two experts working on topics with many themes of mutual interest. Perhaps particularly of interest are the implications for the transmission of ideas and how these complex processes can impinge upon the creation of identities in numerous ways, not least in terms of Jewish and Palestinian identities.

Registration is free and all are welcome. This is a hybrid event that will take place in Lecture Theatre B (Avenue Campus, University of Southampton) and online via Zoom. Please click here to register.
