Antisemitism and Anti-Zionism on American College Campuses in the Wake of October 7th

The editors of the Journal of Jewish Education invite papers for a special thematic issue about antisemitism and anti-Zionism on American university and college campuses since the October 7 attack in Israel and subsequent Israel-Hamas war. This special issue seeks to highlight cutting-edge research and to broaden and deepen our understanding of these phenomena by analyzing their contemporary manifestations and implications for Jewish education and learning, broadly defined. We invite empirical, theoretical, or practice-based articles drawing from all disciplines and using quantitative, qualitative, or mixed methodologies.

This special issue will be a platform for scholars to explore topics including, but not limited to:

  • How different stakeholders define and understand antisemitism and anti-Zionism on campus
  • The ways that antisemitism on campus intersect with other forms of hate, discrimination, or racism
  • Comparative analyses of anti-Jewish and anti-Israel hostility across various campuses
  • Ways of understanding the roots, contours, and prevalence of anti-Zionism among Jews on college and university campuses
  • The ways in which antisemitism and anti-Zionism intersects with race, gender, sexuality, and socioeconomic status
  • The role of local and national Jewish community organizations in responding to antisemitism and anti-Israel sentiment on campus. These organizations might include advocacy organizations, communal organizations (e.g., federations), funders, Greek system, campus-based Jewish organizations (e.g., Hillel, Chabad) and other stakeholders (e.g., Jewish parents, clergy)
  • The role of Jewish faculty members and campus professionals in addressing, teaching about, and navigating antisemitism and anti-Israel sentiment on a curricular, administrative, professional, and personal level
  • Evaluations of effective strategies, countervailing ideas, and methods of undermining stereotypical and hostile views of Jews, Judaism, and Israel in educational settings
  • Students and faculty members’ use and/or response to antisemitism, October 7 and the Israel-Hamas war, and/or Israel/Palestine on social media
