We are an internationally recognised centre for research. We set antisemitism within a wider context of Jewish-non-Jewish relations and as part of the broader phenomenon of religious and racial intolerance.

We provide teaching on antisemitism, racialization and all aspects of racism and religious intolerance, from Certificate of Higher Education courses, to BA, MA and research degrees. Students select modules to suit their interests.
