October 10, 2021 | Ended

The special online “Confronting Antisemitism: Activating Archives, Libraries, and Museums” symposium -- hosted by jMUSE and the Center for Jewish History -- will take place on Sunday, October 17th, at 1 PM ET.

Register now for a special symposium — hosted by jMUSE and the Center for Jewish History, and co-sponsored by the Combat Antisemitism Movement (CAM) — focused on the question of how archives, libraries, museums, and other cultural institutions worldwide can fight Jew-hatred and create lasting change.

The online event — titled “Confronting Antisemitism: Activating Archives, Libraries, and Museums” — will take place on Sunday, October 17th, at 1 PM ET.

The purpose of the gathering is to bring together cultural leaders, scholars, and experts to offer cutting-edge analysis and strategies; identify a landscape of possible initiatives and actions; and galvanize the community. 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.

Topics will range from museum perspectives on modern-day antisemitism, Holocaust denial and revisionism in public institutions, and the examination of the sources of antisemitism and the dangers it poses to free societies.

The event is being held with the support of the David Berg Foundation and Leon Levy Foundation.
