The Image of the Jew in Romanian Traditional Culture 
A study of ethnic images, reconstructing the image of the Jew as recorded in ancient and traditional Romanian folklore and myths, as well as in Christian iconography. The "Imaginary Jew" can be found in the evolution of Jewish stereotypes, and can assist in tracing the popular and religious background of modern antisemitism in Romania 

Dr. Victor Shnirelman (Institute of Ethnology and Anthropology, Moscow) 
The Myth of the Khazars and Intellectual Antisemitism in Russia, 1970s-1990s

The research will explore the use of the Khazar episode as a Russian nationalist antisemitic myth forged to "prove" the Jewish anti-Russian plot. In the 1970s, the Khazar myth became and integral part of Soviet science fiction as well as a subject of ethnocentric Russian and Ukranian scholars who lean toward a "scientific antisemitism."
