Teaching about Antisemitism

AJS TVMichael Brenner (American University), Pamela S. Nadell (American University), Paola Tartakoff (Rutgers University), and Britt P Tevis (Yale University), with moderator Rebecca Amy Kobrin (Columbia University)

Wednesday, December 16, 2:15 PM – 3:15 PM EST

Challenged by the rising antisemitism of our current moment, the speakers all developed new courses on antisemitism this past year. This roundtable examines their experiences teaching about antisemitism in the university and considers the questions: How is antisemitism defined? How do we negotiate the politics underlying the course and the politics of our contemporary moment? What guided our choices of teaching materials out of the many options? How did our particular academic specialties determine the structure of each course? What surprised us about teaching the course?
