Course Description

This course explores the origins of anti-Semitism and the history, from its origins to present times, of the use of the "blood libel" as an anti-Semitic trope. We will analyze the manner in which anti-Semitism was manifested in a series of show trials, from the earliest known examples to the Pale of Settlement in tsarist Russia to modern times in Europe and the United States. Among the trials discussed will be the "Baileys Prozess," the courts martial of Alfred Dreyfus, and the trial and lynching of Leo Frank. | Lecture + Q&A.
