Liberal Tolerance and Beyond: A closed workshop
Wednesday, September 19th, 2012, 1 pm to 6pm
Karen Barkey, Professor of Sociology and History and co-director of the IRCPL, and Humeira Iqtidar, Professor of Politics at King’s College, will lead a closed workshop on the question of how toleration is conceived of in the modern era and explore the relationship of liberalism to toleration.
The workshop builds on recent research that attempts to reconceptualize the place of tolerance and toleration in contemporary politics and their relationship to liberalism. In particular, participants will examine versions of toleration, both in the contemporary context and historically, which cannot be contained within current definitions of liberalism. Convened by Karen Barkey (Columbia) and Humeira Iqtidar (Kings College London), participants include: Ira Katznelson (Columbia), Jeremy Menchik (American University Beirut), Uday Mehta (CUNY), Timothy Shah (Georgetown), and Lorenzo Zucca (Kings College London).
