‘Marginalised pasts: Jews and Muslims in the history of Europe’
Professor Abigail Green (University of Oxford)
European history has been defined as a field by a notion of Europe – its borders, values, civilization and nationalities – that is structured by Christianity and its secular legacies. This lectures asks how thinking about the place of Jews and Muslims within the history of Europe transforms our understanding of the interface between Europe and the world, and challenges our understanding of what ‘Europe’ might mean. Abigail Green is Professor of Modern European History at the University of Oxford. She is the author of Moses Montefiore: Jewish Liberator, Imperial Hero (2010) which was a TLS Book of the Year and a New Republic Best Book of 2010, of Fatherlands: State-building and Nationhood in Nineteenth Century Germany, and editor, with Vincent Viaene, of Religious Internationals in the Modern World: Globalization and Faith Communities since 1750 (2012)
