NEW: Journal for the Study of Antisemitism

Today the first number of the „Journal for the Study of Antisemitism“ was released!

„The Journal for the Study of Antisemitism (JSA) is a select group of independent scholars who are interested in examining antisemitism in all its forms. This group is not affiliated with any institution or financially dependent on a single source of funding. We have in common an understanding of antisemitism as a social pathology that must be eradicated.“

Some of the most outstanding scholars and activists against antisemitism are among the editorial respective advisory board, including:
