Confronting Antisemitism: Activating Archives, Libraries, Museums, and Cultural Institutions in the Fight Against Antisemitism
As trusted public institutions with diverse audiences, how can archives, libraries, museums, and cultural institutions use their unique strengths to combat antisemitism and create lasting change? This critical question will be at the core of the Confronting Antisemitism symposium, made possible with support from the David Berg Foundation and the Leon Levy Foundation, and presented by the Center for Jewish History and jMUSE.
Confronting Antisemitism’s unprecedented, public, international gathering of cultural leaders, scholars, and experts will galvanize our community as they present cutting-edge analysis; offer strategies to resolve barriers to action; and identify a landscape of possible initiatives and actions. Distinguished speakers’ insights and experiences will catalyze cultural institutions to take a new, crucial role in empowering members of the public to confront antisemitism and, ultimately, to achieve new understanding.
This symposium has been designed for a public audience—including students—who will have an opportunity to hear from experts from universities, archives, libraries, and museums around the world as they help encourage a global conversation about the impact and lasting relevance of antisemitism.
