As part of ISGAP’s landmark Fellowship Training Programme on Critical Antisemitism Studies, Discrimination and Human Rights at the Woolf Institute, ISGAP is pleased to announce the launch of the ISGAP-Woolf Institute Contemporary Antisemitism in Comparative Perspective International Seminar Series.

The series will allow ISGAP Visiting Scholars to deliver their latest research to the broader Cambridge community. It will also bring ISGAP’s broader network of scholars to the Woolf Institute, allowing for new ideas to be integrated into one of the most important academic institutions on issues of contemporary antisemitism. Housed at the Woolf Institute, Cambridge, the seminar series will include in-person presentations from top experts in the field, will be live-streamed over Zoom and Facebook, and will be made available as recordings.

This seminar series will be available both in-person at the Woolf Institute and online via Zoom at 12 PM EST / 5 PM GMT.
