Antisemitism is on the rise, both in the U.S. and around the world. This course will put that resurgence into context, considering the history of antipathy to Jews and Judaism, and the ways people have understood its endurance. Is antisemitism a seamless story of irrational prejudice? Or has it evolved with changing times-shaped, for example, by the advent of Christianity, the rise of the nation-state and mass politics, or developments in the sciences? We will also consider how antisemitism relates to anti-Zionism and whether antisemitism exists on the political left as well as the right.
