Shari Golberg

Shari Golberg has a PhD in Religion from the University of Toronto. Her academic work explores feminist approaches to Jewish and Islamic texts and contemporary text-based collaborations between Jewish and Muslim women. Her other research interests include Canadian public policy and religious accommodation, diversity and conflict mediation, and interfaith activism. Golberg also co-ordinates and facilitates Shema & Iqra': The Jewish-Muslim Text Project, a grassroots initiative which brings communities of Muslims and Jews together using classical religious texts as a springboard for dialogue to explore issues of mutual concern, including gender and religious leadership, environmental ethics, and creative expression. She served as the Project Director of Beyond Calligraphy, an art exhibit that brought Muslim and Jewish artists together to explore the relationship between art, public policy, and religious identity. She also recently launched a course and arts collective called Blood, Milk, and Tears, which examines the relationship between gender, emodiment, and creativity in Jewish and Islamic discourses.
