In 2017 in Charlottesville, antisemitism and anti-Black racism converged as white supremacists, in a highly choreographed and violent protest against the removal of a statue honoring a Confederate general, carried Confederate flags and chanted “Jews will not replace us.” In her talk, Magda Teter, the author of “Christian Supremacy: Reckoning with the Roots of Antisemitism and Racism,” will explain the deep roots of that connection and explore the interplay between Christian theology and law to demonstrate how legal and theological frameworks deployed centuries ago in regards to Jews have created social hierarchies that, ultimately, in modern times, contributed to the legal exclusion of and a denial of equality to Jews and Black people.

Lunch will be provided to in-person attendees.

Magda Teter is a professor of history and the Shvidler Chair of Judaic Studies at Fordham University, and the president of the American Academy of Jewish Research. She is the author of “Jews and Heretics in Catholic Poland” (2005), “Sinners on Trial” (2011), “Blood Libel: On the Trail of An Antisemitic Myth” (2020), “Christian Supremacy: Reckoning with the Roots of Antisemitism and Racism” (2023), and of dozens of articles in English, Hebrew, Italian and Polish. Her book “Blood Libel” won the 2020 National Jewish Book Award, The George L. Mosse Prize from the American Historical Association and the Ronald Bainton Prize from the Sixteenth Century Society. Teter has received fellowships from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation, HF Guggenheim Foundation, Radcliffe Institute, the Cullman Center at the NYPL, the NEH and others.

This is a hybrid event, offered both in-person and online.
