Antisemitism: Why the Longest Hatred?
October 27 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm
The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Florida International University is hosting a lecture that examines the genesis and tropes of hate crimes and antisemitism. Historically, antisemitism has been the early warning signal of a society in danger. Why? Using degenerate artworks, Marcia Jo Zerivitz will demonstrate the historical background of antisemitism – the virus that mutates with every generation, and the insidious power of imagery in communicating the agenda of hatred, including Christian roots, the modern world and contemporary racist images from Florida culture since the Civil War covering the Klan, Nazism and restrictive covenants.
This lecture is being live streamed via Zoom. Advanced registration required. Zoom link will be sent 24 hours in advance. To register, please call (305) 919-5900.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia in partnership with Florida International University.
