Antisemitism Culture & Identity

In this webinar, Dimitry Anselme and Dov Waxman discussed how we understand and navigate the overlaps–and distinctions–between antisemitism and critical discussions about Israel.

Anselme and Waxman delve into how Israel and Zionism can shift from an historical investigation or geopolitical discussion to one that traffics in antisemitic messages, tropes, and/or motivations, which consequently can affect the treatment-and sense of safety-of Jewish and non-Jewish students alike.

We are grateful to The Hammer Family for supporting the development of our on-demand learning and teaching resources.
