In his public address on Sunday evening April 15, "Is There an Anti-Jewish Bias in Today's University?" Professor Alvin Rosenfeld discussed how many campuses have become hospitable to certain political and ideological currents of thought that issue in actions and statements that can be seen as hostile to many Jewish students and professors.
Rosenfeld's appearance was in conjunction with the symposium, Betrayal of the Humanities: The University During the Third Reich. The symposium took place on April 15 and 16 in Mondale Hall. The symposium examined the moral role of the university in today's society while exploring the mutation of academic ideals under National Socialism, when the German university system promoted Nazi ideology and helped the state eliminate its diverse community. Fourteen scholars from across the U.S. and abroad, examined core academic disciplines, including anthropology, philosophy, classics, Assyriology, theology, law, and music. A publication of the proceedings is planned.
