From speculation about Jewish space lasers to complaints about George Soros’ influence to the Colleyville hostage-taker’s certainty that a New York rabbi could intervene on behalf of a Federal prisoner, the subtext that Jewish people have disproportionate control in the world—to the point of mastery over nature!—is common on all points of the political spectrum.

Associate Professor Maxine Grossman will moderate a panel discussion of historians and other experts about the origin, history and endurance of antisemitic tropes that continue to surface as unexamined microagressions, intentional dogwhistles and sometimes outright violence against Jewish people and their allies.
