Event description
How can present-day Antisemitism be combated? This international conference will examine vocabulary and tropes of 21st century Antisemitism

About this Event

Antisemitism continues to plague or world. It appears in a wide range of forms from ill-informed statements to murderous rampages. That it never goes away is obvious to all. But how is today's Antisemitism different from earlier forms, and how can individuals and societies combat it?

The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies with Title Sponsors Ken and Linda Robin will host an international conference focused on the tropes and vocabulary of political Antisemitism. Antisemitism has been on the rise since the turn of the 21st Century in Europe and, more recently also in the United States, not only in terms of the number of daily attacks against Jews and Jewish communities, but also political discourse, both on the far right and far left.In this conference, leading scholars and community leaders will examine the vocabulary and tropes of 21st century Antisemitism, will explain why these tropes remain popular in political discourse, and will offer suggestions on how present-day Antisemitism can be combated.
