We invite you on behalf of the Islamicate Graduate Students Association
to a talk by Dr. Atalia Omer (University of Notre Dame.) The talk will focus on a methodological question concerning the study of religion as it relates to actual conflicts and concerns with peace and justice. The question is this: where does—or where must—a scholar stand in order to develop a rigorous and free critical social vision? The talk will engage Omer’s recent book When Peace Is Not Enough: How the Israeli Peace Camp Thinks about Religion, Nationalism, and Justice (University of Chicago Press, 2013).
