Description

Pears Institute Lunchtime Seminar

The Racialization of Antisemitism: Turkish- and Arab-only Prevention Programmes in Germany

Speaker: Esra Ozyurek, European Institute, London School of Economics and Political Science

Date: 23 May 2016

Time: 1.00pm - 2.00pm

Venue: Dreyfus Room, 26 Russell Square, London, WC1B 5DQ

Remembering the Holocaust and fighting antisemitism have come to be accepted as cornerstones of European identity. The flip side of this development has been the racialization of Muslims who have been singled out as the main source of contemporary antisemitism. In this talk, Esra Ozurek examines how the struggle against antisemitism in Germany depicts Muslims as outsiders and Muslim nations as inherently prone to antisemitism. These efforts depict a new Germany that has fully liberated itself from any anti-democratic tendencies surviving from its Nazi past and obscure connections between antisemitism and anti-Muslim racism, both of which remain active forces in mainstream German society.
