His lecture will be followed by a Q-and-A. A specialist in Judaism in the Modern World, Prof. Ariel is one of the foremost experts in Evangelical Christianity's attitudes towards the Jewish people and the Holy Land and on Christian-Jewish relations in the late modern era. He has published numerous articles, book chapters and three monographs on these subjects. In recent years, Prof. Ariel has also co-led the Carolina Center for Jewish Studies at UNC-Chapel Hill.
From 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. on the same day, Prof. Ariel's broader work will be featured in the Center's Fourth F’20 Lunch Research Colloquium(also on ZOOM). Like all colloquia, it is based on two pre-circulated publications by our guest that all participants will read before the start of the session.
