Philosemitism in Contemporary German Media
Montag, 13. Juni 2022, 18:00 bis 20:00
Vortrag von Irit Dekel, Assistant Professor am Germanic Studies Department und am Borns Jewish Studies Program an der Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana
Dekels lecture examines the performance of philosemitism in contemporary Germany through media representations of Jews between 2005-2020 in major mass media outlets. Dekel claims that philosemitism is practiced in Germany as a routine accomplishment of civility. It is performed in three interconnected social domains: institutional, where state institutions show their commitment to protecting Jews as a religious minority; group level, where the contingency between love and exclusionary sentiments toward Jews as others is at work; and individual level, where individuals exhibit positive sentiment toward Jews as a group. Dekel further claims that in performing philosemitism the relations to Holocaust memory, to minorities and to the resilience of the German democracy are examined and articulated.
