Webinar on discourses of anti-semitism

Anti-semitism has become an issue again in some political corners, not least for the populist Left. I am offering a webinar on the rise of anti-semitism in the UK, France and Germany. The webinar is organised by Irina Dusacova and her friends from Zentr Sefer in Moscow next Monday at 3pm (Moscow time)/1pm (CEST)/12noon (GMT, London). Anybody can sign up and join!

About the topic:

We may have long believed that anti-semitic ideologies are a thing of the past, that anti-Jewish prejudice has no place in the modern world. Yet the last few years have shown the surprising return of «anti-semitism» as a major issue of contention in the West. By drawing on observations from Germany, France, the UK and the US, I will discuss why anti-semitism is back on the agenda and how it informs political discourses. I will highlight the populist turn in the Western Left (represented by such figures as Jeremy Corbyn and Jean-Luc Mélenchon), which has gone hand in hand with an increasingly critical view of «Israel». I will look into the transnational dimensions in this discourse and raise the question of how to relate to it.
