Lecture by NU London professor Chloe Yale Pinto.

 

The hatred of Jews and gendered violence has been historically, and complicatedly, entwined. By unpacking various interwoven strands of these prejudices, manifestations of gendered antisemitism come to light. This lecture will discuss different forms of gendered antisemitism, including religious, racial, politial, ad epistemic, while foregrounding the research and writings of Jewish women. By understanding gendered antisemitism we can come closer to critically combating this specific form of hybridized hatred on the page and beyond.

Dr Chloe Yale Pinto is an Assistant Professor in English Literature at Northeastern University London and a Supervisor in English Literature at multiple colleges at the University of Cambridge. She graduated as Valedictorian from New College of the Humanities with a BA in English (First) and was awarded the University of London Sir Charles Harris prize for achieving the highest overall degree results worldwide. Following this she took the MSt in Literature (1900-Present) at The Queens College, University of Oxford (Distinction). Chloe completed her AHRC funded PhD in English (Criticism and Culture) at Pembroke College, University of Cambridge and was recently awarded the first Visiting Research Fellowship in Critical Antisemitism Studies, Discrimination and Human Rights at the Woolf Institute, University of Cambridge. Her current research investigates the interplay between textual antisemitism and literary theory, analysing how the plasticity of anti-Jewish prejudice informs and infects the meaning of words.
