On September 10, 2020, the Religion, Race & Democracy Lab, in partnership with the UVA Jewish Studies Program and the UVA Karsh Center for Law and Democracy, presented the virtual conference How the Law Treats Hate: Antisemitism and Anti-Discrimination Reconsidered. Over the course of four sessions, leading scholars of law, history, and Jewish Studies addressed pressing contemporary questions about antisemitism’s relationship to other forms of discrimination, the proper boundaries between hate speech and free speech, and the Jewish relationship to American civil rights and international law. This event was organized by Faculty Lab Partner, James Loeffler.
