Information for Students

A significant part of the research effort of ISCA will be to clarify what is new and what has been inherited from the antisemitic lexicons of the past. ISCA will focus especially on the intellectual and ideological roots of what has been called the “new” antisemitism. It will also seek to elucidate the social, cultural, religious, and political forces that nurture such hostility. Three graduate students presently serve as research assistants in individual research projects.  Competitive grant support for student research will be available every academic year; grant competitions will be announced on this website and via email. 

Courses on antisemitism include:

  • History of the Holocaust (Prof. Mark Roseman, Department of History and the Borns Jewish Studies Program)
  • Antisemitism since the Enlightenment (Prof. Mark Roseman)
  • Understanding Antisemitism (Prof. Alvin Rosenfeld)
  • Literature of the Holocaust  (Prof. Alvin Rosenfeld)
  • Antisemitism: A Sociohistorical Perspective  (Visiting Assistant Prof. GŁnther Jikeli)
  • Jewish-Muslim Relations in the 20th Century  (Visiting Assistant Prof. GŁnther Jikeli)

Dr. Jikeli offers supervision and advice for students who wish to study antisemitism or who are writing a thesis related to antisemitism. Different methods and approaches of critical antisemitism studies will be discussed. He is available every Wednesday 10-12, Global & International Studies Bldg. 4-E Rm. 4019, ph: (+1) 812.856.1150, or by appointment. Please write to
