About The Event

An Exceptional Hatred? Understanding American Antisemitism

Antisemitism has become a partisan issue in American life. Everyone wishes to stop it, yet no one can agree on its definition or its remedy. Is it a unique kind of hatred, or a sibling of color-based racism? Should we equate White Supremacist rallies with anti-Zionist protests? Can we ban online hate speech?

In this series, James Loeffler will offer legal, conceptual, and historical frameworks as a means of engaging some of the major questions surrounding antisemitism.
