Antisemitism: Same Old Problem or Something New?

Sunday, October 27, 2019 at 2 pm
Discussion and Reception

How distinctive is the current resurgence of antisemitism? Join Indiana University Professors Mark Roseman and Günther Jikeli as they share their expertise and then open the floor for conversation. Roseman will discuss themes of continuity and change in antisemitism over the last centuries. Jikeli will draw on his recent research to analyze characteristics of today’s antisemitism.

Dr. Mark Roseman is Distinguished Professor of History at Indiana University, where he directs the Borns Jewish Studies Program. He has published widely on the Holocaust, most recently Lives Reclaimed. A Story of Rescue and Resistance in Nazi Germany. He holds a PhD from Warwick University, Coventry, UK.

Dr. Günther Jikeli is the Erna B. Rosenfeld Professor in the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism at Indiana University Bloomington and author of European Muslim Antisemitism: Why Young Urban Males Say They Don't Like Jews. His work on antisemitism in social media has been cited by the US State Department and he consults with media outlets around the world.

This is the 19th Joan and Samuel New Institute for the Study of Judaism & the Jews program. It is presented by Spertus Institute in collaboration with Indiana University's Robert A. and Sandra S. Borns Jewish Studies Program.
