Genealogies of ‘Jews’ and ‘Muslims’: Social Imaginaries in the Race–Religion Nexus. A special issue guest-edited by Yolande Jansen and Nasar Meer


This special issue forms part of the output of a four-year research project, led by Yolande Jansen and Thijl Sunier, on ‘Critique of Religion: Framing Jews and Muslims in Public Debate and Political Theory’, funded by the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research (NWO), grant nr. 327-25-009. The contributions were presented at a workshop of the same name held in Amsterdam in June 2017. The project will also result in two forthcoming dissertations, Matthea Westerduin's ‘Supersessionist Geographies: Race and Religion in the (Re)making of “Europe” and “Islam”’ (forthcoming Autumn 2020), and Anna Blijdenstein's ‘Liberalism’s Dangerous Religions: Enlightenment Legacies in Political Theory’ (forthcoming Autumn 2020). The editors would like to thank Tamara van den Berg for her committed and accurate assistance in editing this issue, as well as Barbara Rosenbaum and colleagues at Patterns of Prejudice for their constructive support in bringing this special issue to fruition. They would also like to thank the other workshop participants for their comments and presentations: Annelies Moors, Lars Tonder, Irena Rosenthal, Michiel Leezenberg, Hilla Dayan, Maleiha Malik, Erella Grassiani, Sarah Bracke, Paul Silverstein, Schirin Amir-Moazzami, Maria Birnbaum, Noa Roei and Marianne Vorthoren.
