What is the Relationship Between Antisemitism and Islamophobia?

Lectures by David Feldman and Stefanie Schüler-Springorum (in German and English)

For several years now, scientists have been discussing the hypothesis of whether the roles of Antisemitism during the formation of nation states in the 19th century and racism against Muslims during the process of European integration can be compared.

The British historian David Feldman searches in his lecture for parallels past and present between Antisemitism and anti-Muslim racism. Against the backdrop of the current shift to the right in Europe, does it make sense to politically address these two phenomena together? Which opportunities for future Jewish-Muslim alliances does this give rise to? Stefanie Schüler-Springorum from the Center for Research on Antisemitism will comment on the lecture from a German perspective. Moderation: Yasemin Shooman, Head of the Academy Programs.
