University of Durham Project on Jewish-Muslim Relations
Durham University Department of Anthropology invites participation in a project to explore the relationship between the Jewish and Muslim communities in the UK. The project aims to explore the minutiae of Jewish-Muslim relations through interviews with representatives of both communities in order to elucidate the main factors and wider political and socio-cultural contexts that account for different aspects of this relationship, which has seen instances of both tension and collaboration. Data from the project will form the basis of an academic publication and an application for a larger study. For further details contact Dr Yulia Egorova   0191 334 1612
