The Birkbeck Institute for the Study of Antisemitism holds seminars, workshops and conferences for scholars, and lectures, discussions and film screenings that are open to everyone.
In this lecture, Ambassador Deborah Lipstadt explores the nuanced landscape of antisemitism as she delves into the unexpected commonality of antisemitism uniting the right and the left.

In this talk, Magda Teter, the author of ‘Christian Supremacy: Reckoning with the Roots of Antisemitism and Racism’, will explore the interplay between Christian theology and law that led to the creation of social hierarchies, legal exclusion of and a denial of equality to Jews and Black people. She will argue that this troubling legacy still haunts us today.
In this talk, Professor Arie Dubnov will explore the multifaceted perception of Gaza within Israeli culture, revealing the complex dynamics within Israeli responses to October 7th.
The Birkbeck Institute for the Study of Antisemitism explores the pattern of antisemitism both today and in the past. We connect research on antisemitism to the wider study of racialization and intolerance.
