Muslims and Jews in France: History of a Conflict

April 23, 2015 $10.00 0

Maud Mandel, dean of the college and professor of history and Judaic studies at Brown University, presents her research on the conflict that has long shadowed Muslim-Jewish relations in France. Although anti-Semitic violence began capturing international attention in 2000, Muslim-Jewish tensions were, in fact, the subject of commentary much earlier in the century, as a diverse range of social actors began to fear that Middle Eastern conflict was coming to France. She will argue, however, that focusing solely on the Middle East in an effort to understand Muslim-Jewish politics in France misses key aspects of the story.
