Session of the seminar Racism and Anti-Semitism: global, national and local perspectives with Alexandra Minna Stern (University of Michigan)
Antisemitism sits at the core of the 21st-century resurgence of white nationalism in the US. This lecture explores the recent history of the far right, showing how antisemitism is linked to xenophobia, misogyny, Islamophobia, and transphobia, and is encapsulated in Q'Anon conspiracy theories.
The seminar of the International Platform on Racism and Antisemitism intends to approach racism and anti-Semitism as a global, national and local phenomena, resulting from numerous metamorphoses and historical evolutions. The old forms of racism have not disappeared, but they are now in institutional and systemic mode, and in so-called "cultural" or "differentialist" form. Hatred and rejection of the other are now to be found on social networks (conspiracy theories, often anti-Semitic) and in algorithms.
Second session of the seminar Racism and Anti-Semitism: global, national and local perspectives with François Dubet (Université de Bordeaux), Béatrice Madiot (Université de Picardie Jules Verne) and Céline Masson (Université de Picardie Jules Verne).
