Aims and Scope
The focus of the volume is on artistic and media involvement with anti-Semitism before 1950 across different arts and languages. It recalls largely forgotten novels from the 1920s, such as Hugo Bettauer’s City without Jews, and the film “Gentleman’s Agreement.” It reinterprets classical writers, such as Gotthold E. Lessing, and analyzes their work using the contemporary transdisciplinary approach in anti-Semitism research.
