In this seminar we will enumerate and describe several different varieties of anti-Semitism, past and present, addressing their links to White Supremacy, Islamist ideology and their relevance today. We will also explore the role which anti-Semitism played in the history of the early psychoanalytic movement, both as a cause or a catalyst of certain pivotal developments, and as a focus for theoretical conjectures and debate.  Finally, we will discuss some ways it shows up clinically, and the role which the internet and social media play in disseminating and reinforcing anti-Jewish stereotypes and conspiracy theories nowadays.

3.  Participants will be able to name and explain some factors accounting for the current resurgence of anti-Semitism and hate crimes on the Right and Left.
