“Why the Jews?” Join us as we explore this question again in the final event of USC Shoah Foundation’s Scholar Lab on Antisemitism event series. This moderated discussion will feature Dr. Mehnaz Afridi of Manhattan College and Dr. Sara Lipton of Stonybrook University, who are members of USC Shoah Foundation’s Scholar Lab on Antisemitism program. As part of the discussion, Dr. Afridi and Dr. Lipton will present on their research projects examining antisemitism in the Arab world and representations of Jews in medieval Christian sermons, respectively, focusing on the insights they gained into the causes, manifestations and consequences of antisemitism through history and in relation to religion. The discussion will be moderated by Dr. Jessica Marglin, Associate Professor of Religion at USC.
This event is the third in the three-part event series associated with USC Shoah Foundation’s Scholar Lab on Antisemitism.
