ISGAP Oxford Online Course

The course is based on the expertise that ISGAP has amassed over 18 years of high-level scholarship and academic programming at top tier universities around the world. The online course draws upon the ISGAP-Oxford Summer Institute, which hosts the best scholars and experts from the interdisciplinary study of contemporary antisemitism.

The course is designed to elevate students’ awareness of one of the world’s most urgent issues: global antisemitism. It examines contemporary antisemitism in all its manifestations, which are not widely acknowledged, understood, or combated in society or academia. A compelling feature of the course is its illustration of how antisemitism is tolerated and even promoted, not only in Jihadist mosques and white supremacist enclaves, but also in liberal democratic spaces, from lecture halls to church pulpits, from scholarly journals to news media.

In their penetrating lectures, our scholars will redress a lack of significant literature across the disciplines in college and university campuses today.  Until now the course offered in institutions of higher learning either do not assess the origins and defining features of antisemitism or address it only as a subset of “hatred in general”. The most compelling feature of this course is that while antisemitism exists, contemporary manifestations are not understood or combated within the contemporary and interdisciplinary context.
