The Vidal Sassoon International Center for the Study of Antisemitism is an interdisciplinary research center founded in 1982. The Center is dedicated to an independent, non-political approach to the accumulation and dissemination of knowledge necessary for understanding the phenomenon of antisemitism. The Center supports research on antisemitism through the ages, focusing on relations between Jews and non-Jews, particularly in situations of tension and crisis.
The Center will consider sponsoring projects in a variety of disciplines, such as history, political science, psychology, sociology, economics, literature, and the arts.

The Center has published monographs on such subjects as nationalism and antisemitism; the roots of Christian antisemitism; images of Jews in literature and the arts; Jewish perceptions of and responses to antisemitism; the extreme Right and neo-Nazism in Western Europe; intellectuals and antisemitism; and post-communist antisemitism in Russia and Eastern Europe.

Research proposals submitted for approval at the December meeting of the Academic Committee must be received by October 1.

Inquiries regarding possible research proposals should be directed to Dr. Leon Volovici, Head of Research, at the address below, or via email: lvolo@hum.huji.ac.il
