This year’s annual Uhlman Family Seminar will once again feature an “active reading” format. The four speakers have chosen texts from four eras of European history—medieval, early modern, nineteenth century and twentieth century—that trace the history of European antisemitism through the ages. This seminar will feature brief contextual lectures followed by guided discussions with all of the scholars acting as discussion leaders. The seminar will delve into the twisted logic of religious hatred and its implications for the Jewish people, their society and the general trajectory of Jewish and Gentile relations in Europe. Participants should come to the seminar with texts read and a willingness to share in this important dialogue. This seminar has limited capacity, so sign up early to get a seat.
This seminar is presented by the Program in the Humanities at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. For more information and a detailed schedule of events, please visit the seminar event page. Registration is required and can be completed on the website.
