Presented in partnership with the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, “Antisemitism, U.S.A.” is a panel conversation featuring contributors from the upcoming podcast of the same name, including noted scholars Mark Oppenheimer, Lincoln Mullen, Bradley Hart, and Alexandria Frisch. This panel is moderated by Capital Jewish Museum curator, Sarah Leavitt.


The panelists, each bringing their unique expertise, will explore the historical roots, evolution, and modern manifestations of antisemitism within the U.S. This dialogue aims to enhance our understanding of antisemitism’s complexities and persistence, equipping attendees with a better grasp of its impact on society and encouraging active engagement in combating prejudice.


About the Podcast

Antisemitism has deep roots in American history. Yet in the United States, we often talk about it as if it were something new. We’re shocked by acts of violence or by antisemitic protests, but also surprised. We ask, “Where did this come from?” as if it came out of nowhere. But antisemitism in the United States has a history. A long, complicated history. A history easy to overlook. Antisemitism, U.S.A. is a podcast series coming this summer from R2 Studios, part of the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University.
