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.
Prof. David Feldman teaches at the University of London Birkbeck College and is director of the Pears Institute for the Study of Antisemitism. He researches the history of minorities from 1600 to the present day.
Prof. Stefanie Schüler-Springorum is director of the Center for Research on Antisemitism at the TU Berlin. Her main research areas are German and German-Jewish history of the 19th and 20th centuries.
