Event details

Join members of the Parkes Institute for a series of short 20-minute talks on the history of antisemitism across the world.

The recent outburst of violence in Israel and Gaza has many tragic consequences. Locally, in the UK we have witnessed an increase in antisemitic incidents. As academics specialising in the histories of anti-Jewish violence and prejudice, we believe that a knowledge-based dialogue is the best way out of such crises. In that spirit, we offer a series of short lectures designed to inform our academic community about antisemitism in the past in the UK and beyond. We hope that the specific histories we share will inspire our audiences to combat all forms of prejudice today.

Talk Schedule

These 20-minute talks will take place in Lecture Room C in Nuffield Theatre on the Highfield campus at 1 pm on selected Wednesday afternoons between 21 February and 1 May. Please note that these talks are in-person only. Please find the full schedule of talk topics below.
