Online Program: Automated Hate – Social Media and the Proliferation of Antisemitism

June 4, 2024 | 12:00pm CDT


Focused on the rise and acceleration of antisemitism on the Internet, with specific emphasis on social media, this discussion will highlight the ways online platforms have been exploited to not only spread antisemitic vitriol, but to create destabilizing echo chambers and feedback loops – both of which are driving an unprecedented surge in Jew-hatred online.

Join Dr. Casey Babb, a Senior Fellow with the Macdonald Laurier Institute in Ottawa, Fellow with the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, and Instructor at the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton University, as he leads this timely presentation. There will be a portion dedicated exclusively to questions and answers from attendees. 

Reservations required. Free to the public.

This program is part of the Museum’s “Understanding & Confronting Anti-Jewish Hate” community series.

Community Partners: ADL Midwest; Evelyn R. Green AJC Chicago Regional Office; Sheerit Hapleitah; Loyola University Chicago Jewish Faculty, Staff and Allies (JFSA) Affinity Group

Supported by Carole Feiger, David P. Brody Charitable Trust, and the Wiznitzer Family.
