Antisemitism and other racisms
May 5 @ 5:00 pm

A lecture featuring Jack Jacobs, professor of political science, at John Jay College, presented by the UC San Diego Jewish Studies Program.

Critical Theorists, including Max Horkheimer and Theodor Adorno, devoted sustained attention to the study of antisemitism in the middle of the 20th century.  Can the ideas of the Frankfurt School help us to understand contemporary racists in America and elsewhere?  Can they help us to explain the continued existence of antisemitism generations after the Holocaust and the creation of the State of Israel?  The intent of this talk will be to explore both the approach to these subjects propounded by the Critical Theorists and the degree to which the ideas of the Frankfurt School on antisemitism and racism resonate in our own day.
