A discussion investigating the origins of anti-Semitism, how to identify it and how to challenge it.
Thu, May 13, 2021
4:00 PM – 4:50 PM BST
About this Event
In an age of heightened awareness of the ways that racial and religious inequities manifest in society, have conversations of anti-Semitism been relegated to the margins? What is anti-Semitism, where does it come from, and how can we challenge it?
In 2020, London Met adopted the International Holocaust Remembrance Alliance (IHRA) definition of anti-Semitism.
Despite Jews only making up 1 % of the population in the UK, 19 % of all recorded religious hate crimes in 2019 were made against Jewish people. There are many debates exploring why anti-Semitic hate crime is on the rise. We will explore the origins of anti-Semitism, how to identify it, and what we can do to stop it.
Join our conversation with Ron Cambridge, Head of GSBL Collective Partnerships and Wendy Sloane, Associate Professor of Journalism for a timely discussion.
