Sartre, Jews, and the other: rethinking Antisemitism, race, and gender

Manuela M Consonni (Editor), Vivian Liska (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


The starting point for this compilation is the wish to rethink the concept of antisemitism, race and gender in light of Sartre's pioneering Réflexions sur la Question Juive seventy years after its publication. The book gathers texts by prestigious scholars from different disciplines in the Humanities and the Social Sciences, with the objective or revisiting this work locating it within the setting of two other pioneering -- and we argue, related -- publications, namely Simone De Beauvoir's Le deuxième sexe of 1949 and Franz Fanon's Peau noire et masques blancs of 1952. This particular and original standpoint sheds new light on the different meanings and political functions of the concept of antisemitism in a political and historical context marked by the post-modern concepts of multi-ethnicity and multiculturalism.
