Antisemitism has been among the most global prejudices since the nineteenth century, ultimately culminating in the murder of European Jews during the Holocaust. Despite the mainly European focus of the Holocaust Studies, it was a global phenomenon. Surprisingly the main propagators of prejudices and hateful theories about the Jewish population were members of the intelligentsia.
They produced a wide range of antisemitic literature, journals and so on and it is evident that intellectual antisemitism had been a global phenomenon. Due to the nature of the serial Comparative Studies from a Global Perspective the following call should address not only specialists in the field but also young scholars and PhD candidates from around the world who are working on related topics as well as in history-related disciplines. The aim of the volume is to assemble research about the history and influence several acteurs of the mentioned global phenomenon of “intellectual anti-Semitism” to provide a global and comparative analysis which will determine the transnational roots for the works of these intelligentsia antisemites, who were active around the globe since the middle of the 19th century.
Interested colleagues should send a short chapter proposal (max. 300 words) and an up-to-date CV to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com by February 15th, 2014.
The deadline for the final drafts will be May 31st, 2015. They should have a length of 7,000-10,000 words and the citation (using footnotes) should follow the latest Chicago Manual of Style. Proposals from related fields of research are highly encouraged and welcomed to create a volume that deals with the topic not just from a global, but also an interdisciplinary perspective.
