Globalization and Antisemitism(s): Understanding the Contemporary Attack on Jewish Notions of Peoplehood and Democratic Principles

An ISGAP Online Course • Coming Soon

This course will assess, map and decode the reemergence of global antisemitism(s); which will include extreme right-wing nationalist and racist antisemitism, extreme left antisemitism which targets Israel and notions of Jewish peoplehood, and radical Islamist antisemitism.

The course will take an interdisciplinary approach, examining economic, social, political, and cultural processes in the age of neo-liberal globalization.  The course will not simply be descriptive as is much of the current scholarship on contemporary antisemitism.

This course will draw from the leading scholars, experts and policymakers, from around the world, and who also teach at the Annual ISGAP-Oxford Summer Institute on Critical Antisemitism Studies and Curriculum Development, which takes place at St. John’s College, Oxford University.
