Dr Paul Hedges Associate Professor
Dr Paul Hedges
Hate speech and violence associated with prejudice towards both Jews and Muslims appears to be on the rise in many parts of the globe. But what drivers are behind this, what links these forms of hatred, and how far is religion a factor in such hatred? Providing both historical, conceptual, and analytic perspectives, this project will explore the forms and practice of prejudice and violence enacted against Jews, Muslims, and others throughout history, with a particular focus on Anti-Semitic and Islamophobic prejudice. Various papers and articles are envisaged as outputs, with the main output being the book, Religious Hatred: Islamophobia and Antisemitism in Global Context, published with Bloomsbury Academic in early 2021. There is also a plan to develop an undergraduate course in this region in cooperation with CoHASS.
