New Antisemitism Center Opens in London
A new center for studying contemporary antisemitism is opening in London, England. It has been reported that the London Centre for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism will launch a three-day conference this weekend.
The center described its mission as “challeng[ing] the intellectual underpinnings of antisemitism in public life and to confront the hostile environment for Jews in universities."
The organizers of the institute described its creation as a response to antisemitism “leaking into academic thought and liberal cultural life.” In response, the center will serve to “define, debate, deconstruct and defeat this hostile environment.”
Its mandate is to become “the international hub for the work, rather than merely a provincial endeavour,” according to the report. The two-day kickoff event will include an academic conference with international scholars sharing knowledge on antisemitism. (INN / VFI News)
