New Lecturer in Political Science and Religion
Posted on 23/04/2013
The Department of Theology & Religious Studies at King’s is delighted to announce that Sarah Cardaun has been appointed as the new fixed term Lecturer in Political Science and Religion, starting September 2013.
Sarah has previously been both a PhD candidate and a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Theology & Religious Studies and Middle East & Mediterranean Studies programme (2012-13).
Sarah’s research to date deals with responses by governmental and non-governmental institutions to contemporary forms of antisemitism in Britain. It explores different approaches that various actors adopt to counter anti-Jewish prejudice, including some of the more conventional ways like Holocaust remembrance projects, Holocaust education, anti-racist education and general human rights and minority rights policies. In addition, the controversial role played by some non-governmental organisations that attempt to counter perceived anti-Israel bias in the public arena as a means to fighting antisemitism is also examined.
Professor Michael Kerr, Director of the MEMS programme, commented: 'We are all delighted in MEMS at Sarah's new appointment. She has been a credit to the Programme and we wish her all the very best for the future.'
