‎A Crisis of Modernity Revisited

ISGAP is pleased to announce a groundbreaking international conference on critical contemporary antisemitism studies to take place at Cambridge University. In the contemporary context of globalised relations, it appears that the oldest and most complex forms of hatred, antisemitism, has taken on new and changing forms that need to be decoded, mapped and critiqued. Given the recent rise of manifestations of antisemitism globally, this interdisciplinary conference is timely and imperative. The continual minimal response by academia and the human rights community to the onslaught of antisemitism points to a growing crisis of modernity, which impacts democratic principles, notions of citizenship, and human rights. Antisemitism is also an indicator of the growth of other forms of prejudice, racism(s), sexism, gendered relations, xenophobia and discrimination.

Following the largest-ever academic conference on the study of antisemitism (at Yale University in August 2010), this conference aims to explore this phenomenon from an interdisciplinary approach and advance knowledge and understanding of the origins and manifestations of antisemitism.

The conference is open to scholars, intellectuals, and policy experts, engaged in the study of contemporary antisemitism globally, and related topics, regardless of school of thought, scientific approach, academic discipline or ideological view.

The international conference will be held at Cambridge from 31 July to 2 August 2022, in conjunction with The Woolf Institute. The registration fee is £300 pounds for in-person attendance, including accommodations and half board. £150 pounds for the virtual programme, £75 for students in the virtual programme.

Annual ISGAP-Oxford Summer Institute

for Curriculum Development in Critical Antisemitism Studies

 

The ISGAP-Oxford Summer Institute, Pembroke College, Oxford, scheduled for Sunday, August 7, through Friday, August 19, 2022, is now seeking Scholars-in-Residence for an intensive two-week workshop-based curriculum development program in interdisciplinary critical contemporary antisemitism studies. The program is dedicated to the development of antisemitism studies as a recognized academic discipline.

The program is intended primarily for professors with full-time college or university positions, though exceptional faculty, doctoral and post-doctoral students will be considered. Under the guidance of leading international academics, Scholars-in-Residence will be required to develop a course syllabus and curriculum in the interdisciplinary study of critical contemporary antisemitism. The course syllabus and curriculum is to be taught at the Scholar-in-Residence’s home university for course credit, on at least two occasions, upon completion of the program.

ISGAP also has limited space for graduate and undergraduate university students with strong academic credentials, proven leadership skills, and commitment. Successful applicants will qualify as Elie Wiesel – Martin Luther King Jr. Scholars, who will work on student-led projects to help combat antisemitism and racism on campus.

ISGAP is now accepting applications for the 2022 Summer Institute which will take place from Sunday, August 7, through Friday, August 19, 2022. All participants must make an application.
All scholars that are accepted to the program are expected to be present for the entire duration of the Summer Institute and attend all seminars and meetings. The tuition fee for the two-week in-person programme is $850 USD. Applicants may also apply for scholarships.

A limited number of openings exist for exceptional graduate and undergraduate students to participate in a special Elie Wiesel – Martin Luther King Jr. Scholars program that will run in part, concurrently with the Summer Institute. The tuition fee for the two-week in-person programme is $850 USD. Applicants may also apply for scholarships.
