Why is antisemitism re-emerging in many societies worldwide? The sources of this historical scourge are as varied as the locations in which it manifests itself. We will hear from Dr. Charles Asher Small, a leading international authority on the subject, and Founder and Director of The Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy (ISGAP), created in 2004. ISGAP was the first academic research center on antisemitism in North America. In 2006, ISGAP created the Yale Initiative for the Interdisciplinary Study of Antisemitism (YIISA), also headed by Dr. Small, the first university-based research center on antisemitism in North America, and the fourth center of its kind: the other three are at Tel Aviv University, Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and the Technical University of Berlin.
Dr. Charles Asher Small is based at St. Antony’s College, Oxford University. He is also a Senior Research Fellow at Moshe Dayan Centre for Middle East and African Studies, Tel Aviv University. He has convened groundbreaking academic seminar series in the emerging field of contemporary antisemitism studies at leading universities around the world.
