Tue, 08. Nov 2022, 19:30-21:00 „Whatever happened to Antisemitism? Redefinition and the Myth of the ‚Collective Jew‘” onsite + online on Zoom or Facebook: Hanno Loewy in conversation with Antony Lerman (London) – in English

In collaboration with the Bruno Kreisky Forum for International Dialogue, Vienna Zoom: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/86563854229?pwd=QWYrZllvOXVScUhyaDl1MGdmK3c5dz09#success  Or Live on the Facbook Channel of the Kreisky Forum: https://www.facebook.com/kreiskyforum  In his new book, Antony Lerman explains how anti-Semitism has become one of the most controversial issues of our time. The public, academics, journalists, activists, and Jews themselves are divided over its meaning as never before. This is the result of a 30-year process of redefinition that increasingly equates anti-Semitism with criticism of Israel’s policies. The consequences of this redefinition are alarming: the progressive demonization of universalist positions and a populist legitimization of Islamophobia and nationalism. The result is also a threat to Jews around the world. Antony Lerman, born in 1946, is a British writer who specializes in the study of anti-Semitism, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, multiculturalism, and the place of religion in society. He is a Senior Fellow at the Bruno Kreisky Forum for International Dialogue and Honorary Fellow of the Parkes Institute for the Study of Jewish/non-Jewish Relations at the University of Southampton. He is the author of The Making and Unmaking of a Zionist: A Personal and Political Journey (London, 2012), editor of Do I Belong? (London, 2017) – and most recently the author of Whatever Happened to Antisemitism? Redefinition and the Myth of the ‘Collective Jew’ (London 2022).
