Course Description:

This course analyzes antisemitism in the United States between the colonial period and the present. Examining anti-Jewish practices and discourses, students learn to identify representations of Jews as “others,” determine the sources of anti-Jewish sentiments and policies, and analyze the extent to which, if at all, anti-Jewish bigotry resembled antisemitism in other national contexts and/or its similarities with racism and xenophobia.
