Hot Topics: Race & Faith
 
Event Title  Hot Topics: Race & Faith
Posted Date  13/9/2017
Event Place  London

This autumn St Ethelburga’s is presenting a series of 'Hot Topics' dialogues to bring disparate groups together to confront urgent and pressing questions. 

The Race and Faith dialogue asks: where are the spaces for conversations about ‘race’ within interfaith?  In what ways is it challenging to talk about ‘faith’ in conversations about ‘race’ and in anti-racist organizing?

While the concepts of ‘race’, ‘faith’ and ‘religion and belief have complex relationships and intertwined history, they are often addressed separately.  This separate focus can make it harder to understand their common roots in the colonial encounter, and how this plays out in contemporary Britain, undermining the potential for understanding, solidarity and collaboration within and between groups.

This participatory evening dialogue creates a space for activists, scholars, policymakers and faith communities to engage questions of race and faith together.  Facilitated by Deborah Grayson and Tamanda Walker, they will draw on participant experiences to engage some of the most pressing questions for a post-Brexit Britain, characterized by rising Islamophobia, anti-Semitism and anti-blackness.

They warmly welcome participants from a wide range of backgrounds.  This discussion may be particularly relevant for those with backgrounds in interfaith, peacebuilding and reconciliation, ministry, and those with an interest in decoloniality, afropessimism, critical theory, intersectionality, whiteness and postcolonial studies.
