Moishe Postone, the Thomas E. Donnelley Professor of History at the University of Chicago, provides a lecture on the Holocaust and anti-Semitism. On the basis of a reading of Marx's social epistemology, Postone seeks to differentiate anti-Semitism from other racism in ways that both explain the ideological frame necessary to study the Holocaust and to indicate why anti-Semitism poses a particular challenge for the Left.

Postone's talk was sponsored by the President's Office, the Deans Office, the Cooper Fund, Forum for Free Speech, the Interfaith Center, and the Departments of Religion, History, Political Science, and Sociology & Anthropology.
