Critical Contemporary Antisemitism Studies is an interdisciplinary book series that explores the context of studies of contemporary antisemitism as it relates to otherness and belonging in the age of neoliberal globalisation. The book series assesses notions of contemporary antisemitism, including the demonisation of Jewish Peoplehood, different forms of discrimination, and marginality, in the context of historical and contemporary forms of antisemitism, racism(s), ethnicity, religion and religious pluralism, and gendered identities. This will occur within a context of the emergence of radical and reactionary global social movements who do not recognize the legitimacy of Other and have narrow understandings of belonging, a central area of enquiry of the book series.

The book series will respond to the urgent need for interrogation and theorisation of particular forms of ideological driven social movements and an intellectual environment of marginality and discrimination. The book series utilises an interdisciplinary approach which includes sociology, anthropology psychology, history, political science, and social and cultural studies, to analyse contemporary antisemitism, especially the attack on Jewish notions of peoplehood, marginality and discrimination in various forms, with a focus on assessing the complex and entrenched genealogies of antisemitism and its contemporary manifestations. The book series aims to explore the intersectional composition of antisemitism and marginality and to examine how these phenomena operate globally across societies and institutions. Through this interdisciplinary approach, the book series transcends narrowly conceived notions of boundaries, without neglecting peculiarities specific or unique to national histories and cultures.
