NYU Abu Dhabi Lecture Series in New York City: The Demands of Tolerance

Secularism, Sex, and Religious Liberty

October 6, 2010 | 6:30 - 8:00 PM

Location: 19 Washington Square North

This year-long lecture series probes the complexities and modalities of tolerance, not solely as a matter of individual virtue but as a social and political challenge. The lectures explore the limits and demands of tolerance when under pressure by fervently held religious, sexual, social, and political beliefs.

Saba Mahmood, Associate Professor of Social Cultural Anthropology, the University of California, Berkeley

Joan Scott, Harold F. Linder Professor, Institute for Advanced Study

Linda Gordon, Professor of History, New York University
