Jews and Muslims in the UK: In the Past and In the Future

Lecture, DHI London

This lecture examines attitudes towards Jews and Muslims in the UK in the past as a basis for discussing racism in the present. It argues that a distinct European model of persecution racializes Jews and Muslims in similar ways. One way to break out of the pattern is to recognize the similarities between prejudice against Jews and Muslims and for both groups, as well as others, to join together in challenging contemporary racism.
