Dr. Lawrence Schiffman Campus Anti-Semitism: Prejudice and Ideology

This is a past event.

Wednesday, February 14 at 7:00pm to 9:00pm

Jewish Museum of Florida
301 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, FL 33199 United States

Antisemitism has appeared on numerous college campuses and greatly intensified in the aftermath of the horrendous Hamas attack on Israel on October 7 and Israel's war against Hamas. This has led to investigations by the federal Office of Civil Rights and Congressional committees as well as lawsuits and the resignation of university presidents.

 Dr. Schiffman will discuss factors contributing to this situation, including extreme leftist ideologies that delegitimize Israel, changing campus demography, and the unpopularity on campuses of Israeli leadership and policies. Possible approaches to counter this trend and associated challenges will be outlined. Program presented by The Steven J. Green School of International & Public Affairs at FIU.
