Featuring Dr. Charles Asher Small, Founder and Executive Director, ISGAP; Director, ISGAP-Woolf Institute Fellowship Training Programme on Critical Antisemitism Studies, Cambridge, U.K.
This course will explore the emergence of contemporary antisemitism in the United States, with a concentration on popular culture, the hip-hop community, and sports, while analysing its historical and ideological roots. This course will also assess how and why academia is silent on issues pertaining to antisemitism; and why Jewish people are being increasingly labelled as white and racist in our best universities; just one generation after being hunted and exterminated due to the racist ideologies that defined the Jewish People as an inferior race and a threat to the purity of the white Aryan nation.
