Law and Antisemitism: Inaugural Conference, Indiana University, March 14 – 15.
Antisemitism is more than a hatred and a practice — it’s legal phenomenon. Join legal scholars and experts at the Law vs. Antisemitism Inaugural Conference as they discuss how law has been used both to perpetrate and to combat antisemitism, historically and today. US law in particular has been used to fight antisemitism through the constitutional separation of church and state, anti-discrimination laws, and “hate crimes” laws, among other means.
