Sacred Cultures of Care: Judaism, Islam, and the Politics of Poverty and Justice

March 7, 2018


4:00 PM - 6:00 PM

This conference will gather scholars who examine the role of Judaism and/or Islam as they define and endeavor to forge the “social good” through various practical and ethical visions and movements. How have the Jewish and Islamic religious traditions animated social projects to address poverty and justice? How have their traditional notions and practices of alms transformed over time? How do charitable practices and social movements blur and construct boundaries between religious groups? Who are the recipients of care, and who are the excluded? Historians, sociologists, and anthropologists will interface with community organizers to discuss the urgency of these questions.
Sessions take place March 7 and March 8. Please see full schedule at: https://huminst.uic.edu/ifth/events/special-events/2017-2018/2018/03/08/default-calendar/muslimjewishinitiative
