About the event

Minority Issues Research Institute (MIRI) is organizing a Book Talk on Good Jew, Bad Jew: Racism, anti-Semitism and the Assault on the Meaning by Professor Steven Friedman. Good Jew, Bad Jew is a critique by one of South Africa’s foremost political theorists of mainstream understandings of Jewishness. Steven Friedman offers a searing analysis of the weaponisation of anti-Semitism in service of political objectives that support the Israeli state and global white supremacy. Looking specifically at how language is used to shape identities, Friedman uses many examples to illustrate how anyone who opposes the interests and policies of the Israeli state is increasingly defined as anti-Semitic. 

Speaker:

Professor Steven Friedman (Research Professor, Faculty of Humanities, University of Johannesburg, SA)

Moderator:

Dr Svetluša Surová (Minority Issues Research Institute, SK)

This seminar is organized by the Minority Issues Research Institute (MIRI).
