In this seminar, which is co-organised by the Centre for Theology and Religious Studies and the Centre for Advanced Middle Eastern Studies, we will look at some cases of fluid boundaries and intertwined identities, when religious belonging and ethnic identification freely mix, and evolve, and change. We will hear about two groups, in Israel and in Turkey, with intertwined identities. And we will take a look at national and sectarian identities in Iraq.
