Redrawing boundaries: religion, violence and the search for peace

Please join us for the Our Changing World Lecture, "Redrawing boundaries: religion, violence and the search for peace", with Professor Jolyon Mitchell.

In this illustrated lecture Professor Jolyon Mitchell will explore how increasing numbers of separation barriers and dividing walls are represented and framed in a range of contexts. 

Drawing on his original research and peace building work in Jerusalem & the West Bank, as well as his experience as a former BBC World Service Producer and Journalist, Professor Mitchell will consider the growth in the number of these barriers, and how they are used to frame contested spaces. Drawing upon his recent interviews with religious leaders in Jerusalem he will investigate what beliefs support and challenge these dividing walls, and how artists, journalists and religious leaders attempt to frame, reframe and redraw these boundaries.  

Doors open at 6.15pm.
