INAF 188 - Contemp Global Anti-Semitism
This course will examine the origins and background of contemporary anti-Semitism, often referred to as the “longest hatred”, and explore the various stages of its development in history. We will study the cultural, intellectual and ideological origins of anti-Semitism and the Jewish social and political response to it. The following questions will be addressed, including: what are the roots of contemporary anti-Semitism and what makes it different from its pre-modern and theological roots, also known as anti-Judaism? What are the patterns of anti-Semitism in Eastern and Western Europe? What are the sociological instruments by which we can measure anti-Semitism? Finally, what are the implications of the global resurgence of anti-Semitism and whether we can equate anti-Semitism and anti-Zionism in an ideological, political and intellectual narrative?  
This course will be team-taught by Mr. Abraham Foxman, former National Director of the Anti-Defamation League and Dr. Anna Sommer, Program for Jewish Civilization.
