Events

The Pears Institute runs a range of events through the year. We host conferences and symposia for scholars and hold regular lectures and round-table discussions that are open to everyone.

Antisemitism and racism arouse wide interest and invite multiple perspectives within and across disciplines. This is reflected in our events. They encompass history, politics, philosophy, psychosocial studies, social policy, literature and law.
