Symposium - Nineteenth-Century Anti-Semitism in International Perspective
To understand both current and National Socialist varieties of anti-Semitism, it is necessary to understand the emergence of new forms of anti-Judaism in the nineteenth century, culminating in the coining of the term “anti-Semitism” (Antisemitismus) in Berlin in 1879, which shortly afterwards entered all European languages. An investigation of the phenomenon in comparative and transnational perspective, which has been only rarely attempted, promises to provide new insights.
Languages: French, English and German, with silmutaneously translation into English.
Organized by the Max Weber Foundation and its institutes in cooperation with the Zentrum für Antisemitismusforschung (TU Berlin) and with the support of the Fondation pour la Mémoire de la Shoah and the Musée d’art et d’histoire du Judaïsme.
