Current conversations about antisemitism either fail to define what precisely it is, simplify the phenomenon by describing it as a conspiracy theory, and/or focus exclusively on discussions of Israel. This talk, by contrast, offers a way to think about antisemitism based on its historical manifestations in the American past.
