Join us to hear Shalom Lappin talk with David Hirsh about his latest book ‘The New Antisemitism: The Resurgence of an Ancient Hatred in the Modern World’.

Generations raised after the Second World War took for granted a world of stability and prosperity, and with it the waning of ancient hatreds. Recent decades have been more sobering. Instability and extremism have returned in force. As Shalom Lappin explains in this worrying book, an upsurge of antisemitism across the political spectrum has accompanied them. Recent events in the Middle East have transformed it into a tidal wave.

Shalom Lappin is Professor of Natural Language Processing at Queen Mary University of London, Emeritus Professor of Computational Linguistics at King’s College London, and Research Scientist at the Centre for Linguistic Theory and Studies in Probability at the University of Gothenburg. His main research interests are the application of machine learning to natural language, and cognitive modelling of linguistic knowledge. He has written about political issues in publications such as Dissent and The Guardian.
