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.
Session of the seminar Racism and Anti-Semitism: global, national and local perspectives with John Solomos (Warwick University).
In this lecture we seek to explore the relative absence of a dialogue between scholars working on race and racism in the North American and European context. Drawing on a critical analysis of recent scholarship in both the UK and the U.S. we argue that the absence of a dialogue needs to be addressed if we are to build on the valuable conceptual advances that have been made.
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.
