German, Jew, Muslim, Gay. The Life and Times of Hugo Marcus

Book presentation by Marc David Baer (London School of Economics and Political Science)

Hugo Marcus (1880–1966) was a man of many names and many identities. In German, Jew, Muslim, Gay, Marc David Baer uses Marcus’s life and work to shed new light on a striking range of subjects, including German Jewish history and anti-Semitism, Islam in Europe, Muslim-Jewish relations, and the history of the gay rights struggle.

Marc David Baer is professor of international history at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He is the author of Honored by the Glory of Islam: Conversion and Conquest in Ottoman Europe (2008); The Dönme: Jewish Converts, Muslim Revolutionaries, and Secular Turks (2010); and Sultanic Saviors and Tolerant Turks: Writing Ottoman Jewish History, Denying the Armenian Genocide (2020).

This event will be primarily a Q&A session with the author. A fascinating book talk can be viewed prior to the event on ZMO's YouTube channel here.
