The International Consortium for Research on Antisemitism and Racism
In September of 2011, the Roth Institute co-convened a collection of scholars from America, Europe and Israel who together formed the International Consortium for Research on Antisemitism and Racism (ICRAR). Dedicated to promoting scholarship on various aspects of antisemtism and racism, members of ICRAR are committed to pooling their intellectual and academic resources to advance the study of antisemitism as well as its relationship to other racisms.
Towards that goal, ICRAR members decided to conduct annual workshops dedicated to various aspects of antisemitism and racism. In 2014, the second annual ICRAR conference was hosted by Central European University (CEU), Budapest on the topic of Narratives of Violence.
In addition to cooperation with the ICRAR group, the Roth Institute regularly cooperates with other universities and institutions. Such endeavors included an international workshop in Jerusalem on "World War I: A Turning Point in the History of Antisemitism" in June, 2014 that was conducted in cooperation with the Hebrew University and the Center for Research on Antisemitism, Technical University, Berlin.
In addition to its annual conferences, the ICRAR Consortium also sponsored panel discussions at the Association for Jewish Studies, AJS, in Chicago in December, 2012, the World Congress of Jewish Studies in Jerusalem, July, 2013, and at the Association for Jewish Studies, AJS, in Boston in December, 2013.
The Roth Institute also regularly cooperates with other universities and institutions. Such endeavors included an international conference on antisemtism hosted by the Jewish Historical Institute of Warsaw in May of 2013, and a workshop in cooperation with Tel Aviv University’s Cummings Institute for Russian and East European Studies in April of 2013.
