Do conspiracy beliefs generate antisemitism, or does antisemitism generate conspiratorial beliefs? In a time when both are increasingly present in political thought and rhetoric, it is critical to understand how these two factors interact with one another. In this talk, Dr. Jacob S. Lewis presents exploratory experimental research designed to tease out the causal pathways between conspiracy beliefs and antisemitism. He finds that Americans on the left and the right experience different pathways, but that both are susceptible to such beliefs.

Presented by Dr. Jacob Scott Lewis, Assistant Professor in the School of Politics, Philosophy and Public Affairs, Washington State University.

This program is presented by Gratz College in partnership with the Weitzman National Museum of American Jewish History
