As Ian Bogost noted in The Atlantic this week, recent events have shown that internet technologies facilitate the rapid spread of forms of bigotry and hatred, and the planning of violent terror attacks.
This year’s UC Santa Cruz Night at the Museum seeks to explore the relationship between these technologies and antisemitism, asking: Is there something new about antisemitism today or is it just a continuation of old images and fears? How do social media platforms create environments for the viral spread of global antisemitism?
Join Nathaniel Deutsch and Rachel Deblinger, co-directors of the Digital Jewish Studies Initiative at UC Santa Cruz, to discuss these questions and explore how scholars of antisemitism can work closely with members of the tech community to fight against this and related forms of hatred toward others.
Doors open at 6:30pm. Program begins at 7:00pm.
