Georgina Jardim is a Research Associate of the University of Gloucestershire with a special interest in Scriptural Reasoning and the intersection of gender and religion.
Born in Zimbabwe to South African missionary parents of French Huguenot ancestry, she taught at secondary and tertiary institutions in South Africa and the UK. She has published on the topics of female characterisation in the Bible and Quran, including a brief analysis of Muslim women’s role in the anti-Apartheid struggle in South Africa.
Georgina lives in the UK where she is working to make scriptural reasoning more accessible to non-academic groups, to facilitate deeper engagement between ‘everyday’ Christians and Muslims and to develop public engagement with Christian faith through the arts.
She is married to a fellow South African (of Portuguese ancestry), and they have 3 children.
