    Memory, mourning, landscape2010Collection (editor) (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This volume sheds twenty-first-century light on the charged interactions between memory, mourning and landscape. A century after Freud, our understanding of how memory and mourning function continues to be challenged, revised and refined. Increasingly, scholarly attention is paid to the role of situation in memorialising, whether in commemorations of individuals or in marking the mass deaths of late modern warfare and disasters. Memory, Mourning, Landscape offers the nuanced insights provided by interdisciplinarity in nine essays by leading and up-and-coming academics from the fields of history, museum studies, literature, anthropology, architecture, law, geography, theology and archaeology. The vital visual element is reinforced with an illustrated coda by a practising artist. The result is a unique symbiotic dialogue which will speak to scholars from a range of disciplines.

    British ritual innovation under COVID-192021Report (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This report outlines the context, methods, data, and findings of the Arts and Humanities Research Council funded project British Ritual Innovation under Covid-19 [BRIC-19]. The project ran from August 2020 to September 2021, with the aim of documenting and analysing changes to British communal religious life during the Covid-19 pandemic and associated lockdowns, and of providing best practice recommendations for religious communities adapting their practice to address similar crisis situations in the future. Particular effort has been made to include data that reflects, to the extent possible, the geographic and religious diversity of Britain, by focussing on questions of religious practice rather than on theological questions or issues of belief which are specific to faith traditions. The full context of the project, along with a detailed discussion of the research methods used, is contained in the introduction.

    Asher Lev at the Israel museum2013In: Religious stereotyping and interreligious relations / [ed] Jesper Svartvik; Jakob Wirén, Palgrave Macmillan, 2013, p. 247-253Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    In Chaim Potok’s novel My Name is Asher Lev, there is a scene in which the eponymous protagonist, searching for some means by which to reconcile his drive to create art with his Jewish heritage, visits the Jewish Museum in New York City. There, he sees:

    "Torah crowns, Torah pointers, Torah covers, spice boxes, illuminated manuscripts. Some were very fine pieces of work. But there was no art. It was all crafts and unmoving. I felt vaguely betrayed."

    Convergence and asymmetry2020In: Interreligious Studies and Intercultural Theology, ISSN 2397-3471, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 201-223Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Drawing on a survey of forty-five statements on the status of JewishChristian dialogue, this article argues that the theme of convergence which underlies a substantial portion of this dialogue programme arises from an asymmetric power relationship, in which Christian institutions have been insufficiently attentive to the issue of Jewish self-understanding.

    Love and monsters: gender, autonomy and desire in modern golem literature2021In: Entanglements and weavings: diffractive approaches to gender and love / [ed] Deirdre C. Byrne; Marianne Schleicher, Brill Academic Publishers, 2021, p. 159-174Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter traces the development of the figure of the golem from its early appearance in Jewish text to its presentation in modern literature, as a test case for the boundaries between human and non-human. Unlike the rabbinic literature in which the golem first appears and attracts questions of legal ramifications, modern literature investigates questions of emotion and eros. In the literary treatments reviewed, the golem is narratively acknowledged as an autonomous being when it exhibits the capacity for emotional attachment and agency.

    The work of creation: Image, idolatry, and jewish discourse in theology and the arts2015In: Literature and Theology, ISSN 0269-1205, Vol. 30, no 4, p. 381-397Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The Second Commandment, prohibiting both the worship and manufacture of graven images, is often employed as a mechanism for explaining a perceived absence of Jewish participation in the visual arts, in spite of a well recorded history of Jewish participation in the manufacture of graven images which are typically classed as craft objects. This article aims to introduce to theology the scepticism towards hierarchical distinctions between art and craft which is already familiar in the world of art theory, and by so doing prompt a dislocation of theological reflection on works of art from the point of visual engagement to the point of manufacture. It suggests that attentiveness to Jewish discourses about material production opens up interesting and potentially generative possibilities for work in theology and the arts beyond the consideration of specifically Jewish art.

    Culture, communion and recovery: Tolkienian fairy-story and inter-religious exchange2012Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Recent scholarship on Tolkien has been especially attentive not only to the importance of religion in his personal life, but also to the wider theological implications which may be drawn from his works. In this study, Alana M. Vincent argues that the cultural influence of The Lord of the Rings provides an excellent model for understanding the mutually transformative relationship between religion and culture, and in so doing also provides an important and unexplored pathway for inter-religious exchange.

    Dissenting from Redemption: Judaism and Political Theology2017In: European Judaism, ISSN 0014-3006, Vol. 50, no 1, p. 32-40Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The mobilization of theological concepts within the political sphere is increasingly dependent upon the capacity of those concepts to bear the weight of a discourse of universalism; this universalization becomes problematic when such theo-political con- cepts are then taken up as terms of commonality in interreligious dialogue. This article will focus on one such concept, redemption, as a case study, uncovering the ways that assumptions of universalism might betray the mutual understanding towards which dialogue aims.

    Ecclesiasticus, war graves, and the secularization of British values2017In: Journal of the Bible and Its Reception, ISSN 2329-440X, E-ISSN 2329-4434, Vol. 4, no 2, p. 319-329Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article reads the design of the British Imperial War Graves cemeteries in the context of the religious pluralism of the late Empire. Reviewing the deliberations of the design committee and parliamentary debates on the design of the cemeteries, it notes that the Christian character of the cemeteries was relatively muted, a design decision which caused no small amount of public and political controversy, but which permitted the cemeteries to present an image of a unified Empire. The paper argues that the choice of quotations specifically from the apocrypha was an important and deliberate aspect of this presentational strategy.

    None is still too many: Holocaust commemoration and historical anesthetization2018In: Religion in the European refugee crisis / [ed] Ulrich Schmiedel; Graeme Smith, Palgrave Macmillan, 2018, p. 187-204Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter highlights the tension between political engagement with Holocaust commemoration and responses to the current refugee crisis. Through an examination of historical sources, Alana Vincent makes the case that in spite of the rhetoric of “Never Again!” deployed in connection to the Holocaust, responses to the reality of refugees have changed very little since the 1930s.

    Rituals of reconciliation?: How consideration of ritual can inform readings of Catholic-Jewish dialogue after the holocaust2019In: Interreligious relations and the negotiation of ritual boundaries: explorations in interrituality / [ed] Marianne Moyaert, Palgrave Macmillan, 2019, p. 179-196Chapter in book (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter will explore particular practices that have emerged in the context of post-Holocaust Catholic-Jewish dialogue, reading them as instances of interrituality and analyzing the extent to which their interriting advances the project of reconciliation. One advantage of investigating interreligious exchange through the lens of ritual is that it permits attention to be paid to a range of extra-textual phenomena such as tone, gesture, pacing, costume, and locatedness, which are capable of adding nuance to, or even subverting, a textual tradition. In the case of post-Holocaust reconciliation, it is worth considering whether and to what degree a consideration of ritual alters the conclusions that can be drawn from the record of published documents.
