Dorian Bell: “A ‘Paradise of Parasites’: Hannah Arendt, Anti-Semitism, and the Imperial Imagination”
February 9, 2011 @ 12:15 pm - 1:30 pm | Stevenson Fireside Lounge
Professor Bell’s in-progress Frontiers of Hate: Anti-Semitism and Empire in Nineteenth-Century France explores articulations between anti-Semitism and imperialism that shaped the emergence of European racial thought. Arguing that colonial expansion helped French anti-Semitism adopt its modern racializing guise, the book also examines how anti-Semitism participated in the ideological elaboration of the imperial project.
