ANT 295-03 - Special Topic: Mapping Antisemitism

4 credits (Spring)
This seminar maps themes which inform anti-Jewish attitudes and have been channeled into a “new anti-Semitism” focused exclusively on Jewish nationality and nationalism, terms which will also be explored during this semester. Cumulatively, the readings provide a loose overview of theological anti-Semitism, racial anti-Semitisim, and political anti-Semitisim. Political anti-Semitism offers up important corollary questions concerning the relationship(s) between identities, power and knowledge, the consequences of globalization on stereotypes and (mis)representation of people/places, and importantly, the role of academic activism and its political consequences.

Prerequisite: Second-year standing.
Note: Plus-2 option available.
Instructor: Gibel Mevorach
