A talk exploring identity and how different identities interact within a context of conflict and shapes lives.
Palestine and its people are too often considered through a simple lens of pervasive conflict.
Under the surface, however, are layers of identity which are familiar to each of us: race, ethnicity, gender, religion, social class, disability and so on. These identities impact how the people of the region interact within a context of conflict and between one another. Using activities to draw on our own sense of identities, we will discuss how these characteristics impact our daily life and relate these same ideas to life for Christians in Bethlehem, Palestine. Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of how identity shapes conflict and daily life for Christians and others in the UK and in Palestine.
