Antisemitism and Islamophobia in Europe: comparisons/contrasts/connections
Univesity College London, UK, 22-24 June 2008
The aim of this conference is to explore the connections, commonalities and differences between Antisemitism and Islamophobia in Europe through a broad geographical and historical lens, from the Crusades to the present day.
Papers will focus on contemporary and historical flashpoints, such as Britain, Germany, France, Iberia, Austria, Russia, and the Netherlands. In addition to 'national' case studies, the conference will attempt to gain a broad 'European', transnational perspective on this complex question-- or will at least consider whether such a thing can or should be attempted.
