It’s complicated! Network analysis and Jewish-Christian relationships in the Babylonian Talmud.
This talk will introduce a new set of methodological tools for understanding the connections between Jews and Christians in late antiquity. Together with a zoologist, Prof. Yossi Yovel, Bar-Asher Siegal will use network analysis, commonly used in sciences, to generate models of inter-religious Christian-Jewish networks. Bar-Asher Siegal’s talk will demonstrate the scope, nature, and advantages of network analysis for revealing the complex intertwined evolution of the two religions. The network analysis approach is a tool for pointing scholarly research in new directions, which only reveal themselves as a result of this type of mapping but can also lead us down new and exciting paths that are currently unknown.
This event is in-person and online.
A reception for in-person guests begins at 6:30 CT.
