RELG 039. White Supremacy and Antisemitism
"Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions?" This class surveys antisemitism from antiquity to the present day. It historicizes "religious" and "political" Jew-hatred, considering their differences as well as continuity over time. Since antisemitism intersects with racism, misogyny, homophobia, gender-nonconformity, and economics, considerable attention is placed on constructions of race, gender, sexuality, and class.
