Unravelling Antisemitism: A Workshop on Evolution, Manifestations, and Political Implications

Für Deutsch, hier klicken

This workshop offers participants a comprehensive exploration of the evolution of antisemitism, both in the German-speaking world and globally. By delving into historical perspectives, attendees will gain insights into the changing understanding of antisemitism over time. Special attention will be given to the ongoing Israel-Hamas conflict, shedding light on the nuances and shifts in antisemitic expressions.

Furthermore, the workshop will illuminate how antisemitism is strategically employed as a political tool, becoming entwined with populist narratives that contribute to societal polarization. By providing real-world examples, participants will develop a nuanced understanding of the multifaceted ways in which antisemitism intersects with political discourse.

A critical aspect of the workshop will be dedicated to guiding participants in distinguishing between legitimate criticism of Israel’s politics and expressions that veer into antisemitic tropes. This skill is crucial in fostering informed and constructive dialogue surrounding the complexities of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Join us for an insightful session that aims to equip attendees with a deeper understanding of antisemitism’s evolution, contemporary manifestations, and its role in shaping political narratives.
