25. May, 18:15 – 19:45
In the aftermath of the Holocaust, Antisemitism occupies a unique place among minority hatreds, weighing on historians’ conscience and challenging historical faculties. The variety, local contexts, and divergent character of antisemitism present a major challenge for historical explanation Yet, as globalization progresses, there is a convergence toward a global antisemitic discourse, crossing continents from Europe to Asia to the Americas. The lecture will seek to demystify antisemitism by projecting it against the growth of an ever changing Jewish Diaspora and provide a framework for understanding its transformation from local and diverse antisemitism to a more uniform global discourse.
