Workshop "Defining Antisemitism between history and politics"
The Stephen Roth Institute for Contemporary Antisemitism and Racism, in collaboration with leading institutions for the study of antisemitism, is cordially inviting you to the International Workshop titled "Defining Antisemitism between history and politics".
The workshop will provide a space for leading scholars from different disciplines (including political science, law, philosophy, linguistics, and history) to examine the current debate over definitions of antisemitism and to explore what is at stake in this debate. In this workshop we will address one of the most controversial issues, namely, the relationship between different forms of criticism of the State of Israel – its existence, its constitutional foundations, its identity as a Jewish state, its history, policies, or practices – and antisemitism. The workshop will address questions pertaining to definitions of antisemitism from diverse historical, theoretical, methodological, and political points of view, aiming to give historical and theoretical depth to a heated political debate.
The workshop will take place on May 30 to June 1, 2022, at Van Leer Institute in Jerusalem. Please note that not all talks will be open to the public, as specified on the poster attached to this email.
