Listen to the experiences of faculty and students of OSUN Collaborative Network Course on Antisemitism, Holocaust, Colonialism, Gender

May 7, 2022

This OSUN Network Collaborative Course sought to investigate a complex set of critical linkages and points of intersection between four distinct, but overlapping, areas of inquiry: antisemitism, the holocaust, colonialism, and gender. It brought together faculty and students from five institutions to engage in conversation with one another. These institutions were CEU in Vienna, Birkbeck University of London, Bard College in New York, SOAS University of London, and the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. Each of the different fields constitutes a lens through which to examine prejudice, discrimination, race and hate in their historical and contemporary manifestations. Antisemitism and the Holocaust, however, are typically studied separately from the racism rooted in colonial legacies and gender is often sidelined in these discussions. Consequently, this course has sought to reframe these inquiries, setting them side-by-side rather than in opposition to each other and probing new connections in light of a diverse range of national and regional contexts.
