Module 9: Disguised Antisemitism: Antisemitic Israel–Bashing as a Critique of Zionism, Dr. Charles Asher Small, ISGAP Executive Director, St. Antony’s College, Oxford

In his lecture, Dr. Charles Asher Small underlines the three major influences in the origins of antisemitism, and how they have become convoluted under the title of “antizionism.” Through this history, we will discuss the hostile environment being cultivated in academia for Jewish and pro-Israel professors.
