Module overview

This module explores the rich variety of Jewish life and the development of Jewish experience, including Antisemitism and violence from the ancient to the contemporary world. It introduces students to ideologies and cultures of antisemitism and examines attempts to theorise antisemitism as an historical and contemporary phenomenon; it places antisemitism within wider histories of racism and racialised thought. It also examines ideas, processes and experiences of emancipation, looks at histories of Jewish/non-Jewish economic, social, cultural and intellectual exchange, and examines Jewish experiences of violence such as pogroms and expulsion and Jewish community responses to persecution.
