Prof. Arie Dubnov of George Washington University/Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin will give a guest lecture titled 'Antisemitism: Away from Definitions', addressing the term antisemitism and highlighting the central role played by British social Darwinists and theoreticians of eugenics, who paved the road to the final solution by racializing the Jews. His historical perspective on antisemitism will also touch upon the complex relationship between Zionism, the Empire, and "the Palestine Question."
