Book Launch: Key Concepts in the Study of Antisemitism (Palgrave 2021)

Hosted By: The Anne Tanenbaum Centre for Jewish Studies at the University of Toronto

Presented in collaboration with the Israel and Golda Koschitzky Centre for Jewish Studies at York University

Co-sponsored by the Canadian Friends of Tel Aviv University and the Department for the Study of Religion at the University of Toronto

From the editors: “Antisemitism is, unfortunately, ‘in’ again. While university classes about antisemitism have mushroomed in recent years, textbooks have woefully lagged behind the times. Even the better ones are hampered by the ambition to follow Jew-hatred in exhausting detail across time and space yet in a manner often divorced from broader context and without the benefit of up-to-date theoretical insights. Seeking to remedy this problem, this volume focuses on concepts rather than chronology or geography. It promotes conversation about antisemitism across disciplinary and thematic lines rather than privileges a single methodological paradigm, a specific academic field, or an overarching narrative. Its twenty-one chapters by leading scholars in diverse fields address the relationship to antisemitism of concepts ranging from Anti-Judaism to Zionism.”

This event will feature presentations by volume editors, Sol Goldberg (University of Toronto), Scott Ury (Tel Aviv University), and Kalman Weiser (York University); and remarks by contributing authors, Doris Bergen(University of Toronto), Sara Horowitz (York University), and Jeffrey Kopstein (University of California, Irvine).
