Disciplining Antisemitism Series: Interpreting Imaginary Jews

 

Round-table discussion with:

  • Dr Anthony Bale (Birkbeck, University of London)
  • Dr Nadia Valman (Queen Mary, University of London)
  • Professor John Arnold (Birkbeck, University of London)

Many medieval Christians believed that Jews committed crimes against Christian children and were out to destroy their religion and way of life.  They retaliated with violence of their own, denying Jews theright to religious freedom and peace.  Dr Bale’s new book Feeling
Persecuted: Christians, Jews and Images of Violence in the Middle Ages (Reaktion Books, 2010)
exposes how the images of Christian suffering and persecution were central to medieval ideas of love, community and home. By examining poetry, drama, visual culture, theology and philosophy, he reveals the recreational persecution of Jews as a part of medieval life and culture. The book forms the starting point for this round-table discussion.

This event is part of the Disciplining Antisemitism series organised by the Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism. The Institute is funded by the Pears Foundation and based at Birkbeck, University of London. It is a centre of innovative researchand teaching, contributing to discussion and policy formation on antisemitism and racism. It is both independent and inclusive.

Johannes Fabian – Cultural Anthropology and the Question of Knowledge

The Huxley Memorial Lecture

Professor Johannes Fabian (University of Amsterdam) – Cultural Anthropology and the Question of Knowledge

Abstract:
Although it helps to be aware of what philosophers think about knowledge anthropologists can neither simply relegate their epistemological problems to, nor find solutions in, philosophy. In anthropology knowing what and how we know is a practical, not just a theoretical problem, one we face in all phases of our work, from field research to writing (and teaching). Historical recollections of debates since the nineteen-sixties are followed by giving attention to two aspects of the knowledge-question in our discipline: Knowledge of what? and Whose knowledge? Guided by reflections on knowledge and survival, the lecture will end with an attempt to assess the present and future state of the question.
