Human Rights Lecture Series on Antisemitism

March 31, 2022
11:10 A.M. - 1 P.M.

Antisemitism – anti-Jewish animosity, rhetoric, and violence – has increased dramatically in recent years. At the same time, confusion over its definition has led to misunderstandings and, in some cases, cynical political exploitation of the charge.

In this lecture, Joshua Shanes, Ph.D., associate professor of Jewish studies, and director of the Arnold Center for Israel Studies at the College of Charleston, reviews the history of antisemitism, the myths and lies that lay at its heart and consider its relationship to other forms of racism and discrimination, as well as to discourse about Israel. Joshua Shanes has published widely on modern Jewish politics and religion, as well as antisemitism and contemporary American and Israeli politics, in both academic and popular venues including the Washington Post, Slate, Haaretz and the Forward,

This event is hosted and organized by the SFC International Office, in collaboration with the Economics, History and Political Science department, Forum on Migration, Institute for Global Engagement and the St. Francis College Chapter of Amnesty International.
