“THE CHANGING FACE OF ANTISEMITISM”
Antisemitism is an old problem with roots that reach back to medieval Europe. While earlier forms focused more on religious bigotry, antisemitism in the modern period became increasingly racialized and politicized. So what is the connection between older ideas about Jews and Judaism, and contemporary antisemitic tropes and stereotypes? How are conspiratorial fears about Jewish invisibility and global control related to the emergence of finance capitalism? And what can history teach us about how to confront antisemitism today? Josh and Ray go back in time with historian Francesca Trivellato, author of “The Promise and Peril of Credit” and editor of “Jews in Early Modern Europe” (forthcoming).
