Serie di seminari “L’antisemitismo nella prospettiva comparata”

Click here to read in English

Antigiudaismo, o il termine controverso coniato nel 1870 da Wilhelm Marr, antisemitismo, è uno dei più complessi e, a volte, forme sconcertanti di odio. Si estende nella storia, infettando diverse società, movimenti religiosi e filosofici e anche civiltà intere. All’indomani della Shoah, alcuni hanno sostenuto che l’antisemitismo illustra i limiti dell’Illuminismo e della modernità stessa. Manifestazioni di antisemitismo emergono in numerose narrative ideologiche e con esso vengono costruite identità di appartenenza e alterità come la razza e l’etnia, nazionalismi e anti- nazionalismi .

Questa serie di seminari si propone di esplorare questo tema in un quadro interdisciplinare completo, con una vasta gamma di approcci e punti di vista e dei contesti regionali. Eminenti studiosi e ricercatori sono invitati a presentare propri scritti ed elaborazioni, in un ambiente informale. Per migliorare il livello di discussione, i documenti saranno resi disponibili online una settimana prima del seminario .

The Antisemitism in Comparative Perspective Seminar Series

Anti-Judaism, or the controversial term coined in the 1870s by Wilhelm Marr, Antisemitism, is one of the most complex and, at times, perplexing forms of hatred. It spans history, infecting different societies, religious and philosophical movements, and even civilizations. In the aftermath of the Holocaust, some contend that Antisemitism illustrates the limitations of the Enlightenment and modernity itself. Manifestations of Antisemitism emerge in numerous ideological based narratives and the constructed identities of belonging and otherness such as race and ethnicity, nationalisms, and anti-nationalisms.

This seminar series, co-sponsored with the Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy, aims to explore this subject matter in a comprehensive, interdisciplinary framework from an array of approaches and perspectives as well as regional contexts. Eminent scholars and researchers are invited to present seminar papers in an informal setting. To enhance the level of discussion, papers will be made available online one week prior to the seminar.
