The rise of the alt-right and its various manifestations of antisemitism, racism, and nationalism has garnered considerable attention. On Wednesday, March 22, at 7:30 p.m., Rev. Daniel Joslyn-Siemiatkoski, PhD, will examine this phenomenon and propose how this challenge can be met by those committed to fostering positive relations between Jews and Christians for the good of society.

Fr. Joslyn-Siemiatkoski’s lecture, “Antisemitism and the Far Right: A Challenge to Jewish-Christian Relations,” the 17th Annual Lecture in Jewish/Christian Engagement, will take place in Fairfield University’s Kelley Presentation Room. This in-person event is free and open to the public, and will also be livestreamed for virtual attendance. Register for the livestream at events.fairfield/edu.

Joslyn-Siemiatkoski is a recognized scholar in Christian-Jewish relations and comparative theology.  He currently serves as the Kraft Family Professor and Director of the Center for Christian-Jewish Learning at Boston College.

Joslyn-Siemiatkoski is  the author of The More Torah, The More Life: A Christian Commentary on Mishnah Avot (Fordham University Press, 2018) and Christian Memories of the Maccabean Martyrs (Palgrave Macmillan, 2009). His research interests include Jewish-Christian relations ancient and modern, the intersection of anti-Judaism and racism, and Anglican theologies of religion.
