Contradictions: Tropes of Antisemitism International Conference

Nov. 5, 2019

Antisemitism continues to plague our world. It appears in a wide range of forms from ill-informed statements to murderous rampages. That it never goes away is obvious to all. But how is today’s antisemitism different from earlier forms, and how can individuals and societies combat it?The Arizona Center for Judaic Studies with Title Sponsors Ken and Linda Robin will host an international conference focused on the tropes and vocabulary of political Antisemitism. Antisemitism has been on the rise since the turn of 21st century in Europe and, more recently also in the United States, not only in terms of the number of daily attacks against Jews and Jewish communities, but also in political discourse, both on the far right and the far left.In this conference leading scholars and community leaders will examine the vocabulary and tropes of 21st century antisemitism, will explain why these tropes remain popular in political discourse, and will offer suggestions on how present-day Antisemitism can be combated. The conference will take place on February 23-24, 2020, at the University of Arizona in Tucson, Arizona.  View our CALENDAR for more information.Registration & PaymentConference fee: $50 per person, per day or  $75/ person for both Day 1 and Day 2*Registration for this event is open until Friday, February 21,2020Conference Dinner fee: $50/ personPozez Memorial Lecture Series, Keynote Speaker: Luciana Berger*You must register for conference dinner no later than Friday, February 14, 2020Students: *FREE, must be current student w/ ID.
