How widespread is antisemitism on social media really? After some reflections on the aims and limitations of research on online antisemitism and its methods, Günther Jikeli will present early results from his ongoing project on antisemitism on Twitter that tries to identify trends in conversations about Jews and Israel.
Günther Jikeli holds the Erna B. Rosenfeld Professorship at Indiana University’s Institute for the Study of Contemporary Antisemitism at the Borns Jewish Studies Program. He is an associate professor in Germanic Studies and Jewish Studies at Indiana University.  He received his doctorate from the Center for Research on Antisemitism at Technical University Berlin in 2011. He is a historian and sociologist of modern Europe, with particular interests in the history of antisemitism and in critical antisemitism studies. His latest book (with Olaf Glockner) “Das neue Unbehagen. Antisemitismus in Deutschland heute” [The New Unease. Antisemitism in Germany Today] was published in summer 2019. In 2015, he published „European Muslim Antisemitism.“ with IU Press.
In 2013, he was awarded the Raoul Wallenberg Prize in Human Rights and Holocaust Studies. Günther’s academic work was recognized in 2019 by The Algemeiner as one of “The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life.”
