Islam, Judaism, and Decoloniality with Santiago Slabodsky and Sanober Umar

April 12 @ 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM

Cost: Free

Introductory Remarks by Alessandra Benedicty-Kokken, Moderated by Adi Saleem Bharat
In this seminar on Islam, Judaism, and decoloniality, Santiago Slabodsky and Sanober Umar suggest some paths towards disrupting/decentering (Eurocentric) intellectual epistemic hegemonies in the broadly defined fields of Jewish Studies and Islamic/Muslim Studies. Together, they will reflect on how we can draw on Southern epistemologies to broaden the horizon of Jewish and Muslim studies. In particular, Professor Slabodsky, the author of Decolonial Judaism, connects Jewish history and thought with the histories and presents of anti-colonial and decolonial struggles, thus exploring what a decolonial Judaism would look like in the twenty-first century. Similarly, Professor Umar, who is writing a book on the histories and global politics of “racing” and gendering Islam, seeks to complicate and decolonize our ideas of the “Muslim World,” specifically from a Global South/Indian Muslim perspective, foregrounding caste, racialization, and gender.
