Grenzen der Aufklärung. Der 7. Oktober und die Gegenwart des Antisemitismus

"Grenzen der Aufklärung? Antisemitismus im 21. Jahrhundert"

The three-day conference "Limits of Enlightenment. October 7 and the Present of Anti-Semitism" brings together introductory and in-depth contributions and is dedicated to the currently prevailing facets of anti-Semitism: Israel-related, Islamic, post-colonial and "progressive", but also right-wing and academic hostility towards Jews and Israel. The panels and lectures will shed light on anti-Semitism in the arts and cultural sector, at universities and at the United Nations (UN), among other things. In in-depth workshops, we will focus on the history of the Arab-Israeli conflict as well as the political-economic foundations and critical theory of anti-Semitism. In particular, the conference will discuss which theories can help to understand anti-Semitism, where the limits of educational work lie and what would contribute to combating this dangerous ideology.
Admission is generally free and open to the public. Registration is required for the workshops on Friday, June 21, some of which will take place at the NS Documentation Center, at anmeldung@kritischebildung.de. The entire program and any changes can be found at www.kritischebildung.de

On the last day, the focus will be on the various current facets of anti-Semitism. We will talk about anti-Semitism on the left, especially after October 7, 2023, and about the role of trade unions. We will address Islamic and right-wing anti-Semitism, problematize postcolonial theory and discuss the theoretical and practical limits of enlightenment. The conference will conclude with a discussion on the question of what can and must be done to combat anti-Semitism. This will be followed by live music from "The Barintones".
