Lecture by Chad Alan Goldberg , the G. L. Mosse Visiting Professor at the Hebrew University
Chad Alan Goldberg, Associate Professor of Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and the George L. Mosse Visiting Professor for spring 2008 at the Hebrew University, will be giving a lecture at the Department of History's Graduate seminar on Wednesday, 27 February 2008.
Prof. Goldberg's talk will be entitled
"Toward a Durkheimian Theory of Anti-Semitism"
The lecture looks into the principal contributions that Emile Durkheim's essay, "Antisémitisme et crise sociale", makes to the sociology of anti-Semitism, relates those contributions to Durkheim's broader theoretical assumptions and concerns, situates his analysis of anti-Semitism in its social and historical context, contrasts it to other analyses of anti-Semitism (Marxist and Zionist) that were prominent in Durkheim's time, and indicates some of the revisions and additions that a fuller and more complete Durkheimian theory of anti-Semitism would entail.
