New journal launch: Antisemitism Studies

Friday, September 15, 2017
Indiana University, 12:00 noon, Global & International Studies Building 4067

A double blind peer-reviewed academic publication, issued twice a year, Antisemitism Studies provides the leading forum for scholarship on the millennial phenomenon of antisemitism, both its past and present manifestations. Multidisciplinary and international in scope, the journal will publish a variety of perspectives on, and interpretations of, the problem of antisemitism and its impact on society. Each issue is composed of a brief introduction by the editor, a selection of scholarly articles, and reviews of significant new books published on the subject.

Dr. Catherine Chatterley is an award-winning writer, a frequent lecturer in Canada and the United States, who specializes in the study of European history, with particular emphasis on the history of antisemitism and the dynamic relationship between Jews and non-Jews in Western history. Syracuse University Press published her first book, Disenchantment: George Steiner and the Meaning of Western Civilization After Auschwitz, which was named a 2011 National Jewish Book Award Finalist in the category of Modern Jewish Thought and Experience. Her second book, entitled The Antisemitic Imagination, is forthcoming from Indiana University Press. A third study, called "Killing the Holocaust: Jewish Experience Under Siege", is in development. Dr. Chatterley teaches history at the University of Manitoba and is the Founding Director of the Canadian Institute for the Study of Antisemitism (CISA).
