A message from Alvin H. Rosenfeld, Director, Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism, Indiana University:

Dear friends and colleagues,

The Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism is happy to be able to announce the continuation of the Beinner Family Speakers Series on contemporary antisemitism.

Please find the fall 2022 program listed below.

Over 2,000 scholars and other concerned people from more than 40 countries have actively participated in our webinars on antisemitism since summer 2020. The talks and discussions have been highly rewarding and attest to the growing scholarship in the field. Antisemitism shows no signs of diminishing. The same must be true for our need to pay serious, ongoing attention to it. Our goal is to encourage the ongoing pursuit of high-level research on antisemitism by fostering productive and collegial discussion of the most pertinent issues before us.

Please plan to join us and encourage your friends and colleagues to do so as well.

Sincerely,

Dr. Alvin H. Rosenfeld
