Introduction by the Psychohistory Forum’s Director/Convenor:

There has been an explosion of antisemitism in the U.S. and around the world.  I like to say antisemites are coming out of the woodwork, especially since the assault on Israelis by Hamas on October 7, 2023, and Israel’s subsequent destructive bombardment of Gaza. We could not have a timelier Psychohistory Forum Work-in-Progress meeting. I trust that you and your colleagues will join us for this virtual presentation.

Below are the abstract of the paper and a short bio of the presenter.

Antisemitism: A Psychohistorical Enigma
by Inna Rozentsvit


Antisemitism as prejudice and discrimination against Jewish individuals and communities, a deeply troubling phenomenon, has existed since ancient times while constantly changing its expressions. This article attempts to examine the psychohistorical context of antisemitism, which is crucial in combating it as well as fostering a more inclusive and tolerant world.

There are about a dozen articles on antisemitism submitted for Clio’s Psyche’s Call for Papers on it, which are currently being refereed. The Antisemitism Special Issue will appear in the Spring and include a commentary on Inna’s paper as well as her response to the commentary. I hope that all the colleagues who submitted papers on antisemitism in its many historical and contemporary variations will participate in Inna’s presentation. Like all our work-in-progress seminars, most time is devoted to Q&A.

Please also keep in mind that on the last Saturday in April, we will also have a seminar devoted to the Psychology of Sports with Drs. Tom Ferraro and Kenneth B. V. Gross as presenters. Two additional meetings are being vetted by a committee, and we will have our traditional before the U.S. Presidential Election meeting on November 2nd with the details to be announced.
