About this Event

Description of Webinars

Antisemitism around the globe did not collapse with the defeat of Nazi Germany. Rather, antisemitic propaganda, attacks, and violence continued to surface and explode in the years following the war as they continue to do today. Even as Munich (1972), Entebbe (1976), and the Achille Lauro (1985) were metonyms for antisemitic acts in their day, Charlottesville, Pittsburgh, and Poway have recently become metonyms for antisemitism in contemporary America.

The series, “Antisemitism Since the Holocaust: Israel, America, and Europe,” brings together distinguished scholars of Israeli, American, and European history to reflect broadly on antisemitism over the past seventy-five years. Inspired by our current moment, this series of conversations, sponsored by American University’s Center for Israel Studies and the Jewish Studies Program, brings needed perspective and context to recent events.

The series is scheduled to coincide with several American University classes, including a new class on The History of Antisemitism (hence the strange-looking times). If you cannot make these times, each event will be recorded and publicized as webinars for later viewing. The format will be a fifty-minute moderated discussion with eminent scholars of antisemitism and AU professors, followed by a twenty-minute question and answer session.

After you sign up for the series, we will send you a link to the first webinar. You will be re-sent a reminder, session description and link for viewing the webinar a week before each session. We look forward to having you join us! Links for viewing past webinars after the fact will also be provided in your reminder email.
