Description

Disentangling Judaeophobia, Antisemitism and Anti-Zionism

David Feldman (BBK), Mary Fulbrook (UCL), Andrea Schatz (KCL) and Yair Wallach (SOAS). Convened by Seth Anziska (UCL) and Tamar Garb (UCL).

This panel will consider the terms Judaeophobia, Antisemitism and Anti-Zionism — and adjacent terms -- in relation to their histories and from various disciplinary perspectives. The panel aims to respond to some of the following questions and others:

How can we find a suitable definition of the above terms in both scholarly and public debate? What are the historical continuities and ruptures from early hostility to Jews and Judaism and modern forms of racism? How has nationalism challenged traditional drivers of antisemitism? What is the role of Zionism in the transformation of modern Jewish politics, and anti-Semitic polemics? To what extent has the Israeli-Palestinian conflict transformed questions of antisemitism and antizionism? How have populist politics recast left-wing and right-wing hostility towards Jews and Israel?

All welcome. Please note that there may be photography and/or audio recording at some events and that admission is on a first come first served basis. Please follow this FAQ link for more information. All our events are free but you can support the IAS here.
