About This Event

While antisemitism has pervaded American and European institutions of higher education throughout the twentieth century, recent years have seen a disturbing rise of antisemitic incidents and antisemitic language in the U.S. This interdisciplinary panel, hosted by Gonzaga's Religious Studies Department and the Gonzaga Center for the Study of Hate in partnership with the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, explores the historical underpinnings of antisemitic tropes and images that have permeated a variety of contexts in higher education. Through an exploration of the history of these antisemitic ideas during the 1930s and 1940s, and their continuation in the years that followed, this discussion will address the ways in which these ideas still permeate classroom contexts today.
