Abstract

Challenging the academic division of labor between studies of antisemitism and other kinds of racisms, my doctoral project explores anti-Jewish racism in contemporary Sweden. Locating white, modern and liberal Sweden at the center of the analysis, the dissertation explores the connection between anti-Jewish racism and constructions of “Swedishness”, both in relation to secularism and Protestantism and anti-Muslim racism and in relation to gender and sexuality as social categories. Challenging the usefulness of the paradigm of “new antisemitism” to grasp experiences of anti-Jewish racism in Sweden, the thesis explores the complex dynamics between Jews in Sweden, and processes of national inclusion and exclusion.

Seminariet samordnas med Forum for Judiska Studier (Uppsala universitet).
