Jews in Medieval England

Most of us would like to believe that we are capable of understanding cultural differences and adapting our behavior accordingly. But are we? Come find out.

The experience of Jews in medieval England was somewhat unique and relatively short-lived, compared to Jews in mainland Europe. Jews arrived in England at the end of the 11th century and were expelled from England in 1290. This presentation will highlight the different ways that Jewish "otherness" was represented within the medieval European and English contexts as well as the religious, cultural, political, and economic factors that contributed to intolerance.

The Center for Teaching Excellence (CTX) is located in Room 1624. 

You will find the CTX in the Student Center above Mary’s Kitchen.
