Yulia Egorova is associate professor of Anthropology at Durham University (UK). At the Katz Center she will put scholarship that has explored the sociocultural significance of DNA studies conducted among Jewish communities in dialogue with postcolonial theory. Egorova is also completing a coauthored monograph titled Jews, Muslims, Difference, which uses the context of South Asia to explore the problematics of Jewish-Muslim relations in conjunction with theoretical reflections on the nature of anti-Jewish and anti-Muslim prejudice, and constructions of racial and religious difference. She is the author of Jews and India: Perceptions and Image (Routledge, 2006) and a coauthor of Genetics, Mass Media and Identity (Routledge, 2006), and of The Jews of Andhra Pradesh: Contesting Caste and Religion in South India (Oxford, 2013).
