What is the contemporary antisemitism? Had it became only an academic problem, an object of research? Whether it has influence on the political and social life of different parts of the world? Do its features change and how they do it? Whether the antisemitism’s nature changes too? Is antisemitism the political trump card in the countries with their own antisemitic tradition? Can antisemitism become a part of the state policy in the time when the Jews are not “the state inside the state”? The participants of the panel discussion “The Contemporary Global Antisemitism: An Academic, Social, and Political Perspectives” (the first event of the seminar series “The Contemporary Antisemitism in Ukraine and Worldwide”) will make attempts to answer these questions.
Dr. Charles Small, Director of the Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy (ISGAP).
Dr. Zeev Khanin, Professor at Bar-Ilan University and Ariel University.
Dr. Ihor Shchupak, Director of the Ukrainian Institute of Holocaust Studies “Tkuma.”
Dr. Vitaly Chernoivanenko, President of the Ukrainian Association for Jewish Studies.
Date: 12 November 2015, 6 p.m.
Venue: Office of the NaUKMA Jewish Studies programs, Kyiv, Voloska Street 8/5, building 5, basement.
