Charles Selengut

Dr. Charles Selengut is professor of Sociology and of Religious Studies at Drew University in Madison, New Jersey. He is the author of many scholarly studies on the rise of Fundamentalism and New Religious Movements in the Middle East, that foresaw, early on, the advent and intensity of the current strife in Israel and around the globe. Among his latest works are, a monograph on the religious roots of the Muslim/Israeli conflict, and his books, Jewish Identity in the Post Modern Age and The Jewish Muslim Encounter, based on an international conference he organized in Europe, which brought scholars from divergent branches of these faiths, face to face. Dr. Selengut was the recipient of an NEH Fellowship at Harvard University and is currently conducting research for a study on apocalyptic Messianism in Israel and the US.
