What is antisemitism? Who gets to define it? What does it have to do with Israel, Islamophobia, anti-Palestinian racism, and American geopolitics?
A panel of experts will tackle this difficult topic, scrutinizing the history of traditional Christian anti-Judaism and modern antisemitism. They will offer an opportunity to demystify ahistorical accounts of antisemitism as an unchanged condition unrelated to Western Christian modernity and the history of White supremacy. They will also interrogate the politics surrounding the definition of antisemitism, illuminate the interlinking between Islamophobia and anti-Palestinian racism and antisemitism, and raise questions regarding the concept of "Judeo-Christianity," exposing how it serves particular geopolitical and ideological agendas.
