Contemporary Antisemitism in Europe
Antisemitism, often considered one of history’s oldest forms of hatred, is making headlines across the globe. A 2018 study by the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights found that 39 percent of Jewish people in Europe indicated they have personally experienced antisemitic harassment. In the United States, the number of antisemitic incidents and level of violence has also risen sharply in recent years.
Furthermore, antisemitism seems to have entered the mainstream, crossing all political affiliations, nationalities, and religions. Antisemitic ideas are drifting into the mainstream from the extremes of the political right and political left, as well as from religious extremists. Where is this coming from and how can it be stopped?
The event is free to all. Livestream presentation by Dr. Günther Jikeli, an Erna B. Rosenfeld Professor at the Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism/Borns Jewish Studies Program and an Associate Professor of Germanic Studies at Indiana University.
