Event description: 

The Fifth Annual Conference of the International Consortium for Research on Antisemitism and Racism (ICRAR)

The past decade has seen a rise of openly racist, anti-Semitic, Islamophobic, homophobic, and misogynistic groups both in the United States and around the world. The goal of this conference is to map various domestic and foreign iterations of the current far-right, racist, and/or anti-Semitic ethos, to explore the ideologies and ideas of these groups, to consider their commonalities, as well as their divergencies and tensions.

Although the conference is open to the public and all are welcome to attend, members of the media are required to notify the Yale Office of Public Affairs(OPAC) if they will be on campus for any purpose. If you are a member of the media wishing to attend this conference, please start by contacting OPAC here. The OPAC team is poised to assist all print, broadcast, and online media.
