Fourth Annual Alfred Wiener Holocaust Memorial Lecture: Antisemitic Conspiracy Theories: Past, Present and Future?

November 22, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This year’s Annual Alfred Wiener Holocaust Memorial Lecture will take place once again at Gresham College, and will be delivered by esteemed historian Professor Sir Richard Evans.

Antisemitism has existed and continues to exist on many levels, from unthinking prejudice to highly developed theories. Common to all levels is an explicit, or more often, implicit belief that all Jews, usually defined in racial terms, are conspiring secretly to undermine civilisation, order, or social and cultural stability.

This lecture considers the evolution of this conspiracy theory since the Middle Ages, examines its nature and operation today, and considers its future development.

About the Speaker:

Professor Sir Richard Evans FBA was Provost of Gresham College from 2014-2020. He is a world-renowned historian and academic, with many of his books now acknowledged as seminal works in the field of modern history. He was Regius Professor of History at the University of Cambridge from 2008 until his retirement in September 2014.
