HAHN Ideas Forum: Why Antisemitism Now?
Deadline Expired on April 1, 2022On August 15-16, OSUN's Hannah Arendt Humanities Network will inaugurate its Ideas Forum series at Bard College, bringing together students and faculty from across the OSUN community to engage in thoughtful conversation about some of the most important, and controversial, topics of the day. The first Ideas Forum will focus on the subject of antisemitism.
Hosted by Bard College professor Walter Russell Mead, each forum focuses on a single issue–nationalism, populism, religious freedom–and includes a variety of public and private events over the course of several days. Expert academics, journalists and policy professionals will join Professor Mead and forum attendees in conversation. The series is an exciting opportunity for members of the OSUN community to convene and think deeply about some of the most vexing issues of our time in an open environment.
In addition to panel discussions and class visits, forum participants will be provided with excerpts from Professor Mead's forthcoming work The Arc of a Covenant: The United States, Israel, and the Fate of the Jewish People. Held in conjunction with the Language and Thinking program, the first Ideas Forum will give students and faculty at Bard College and from throughout the OSUN network the opportunity to discuss the significance and origins of rising antisemitism globally, how antizionism does or does not relate to antisemitism, and what antisemitism looks like in its various forms.
