How do myths and stereotypes become part of a culture? When does hatred become convenient? This online workshop will raise profound questions about the ways stereotypes and myths that lie at the heart of a particular hatred have evolved and why those lies persist despite heroic efforts to counter them. The content of this online workshop will draw largely from Facing History's resource book, A Convenient Hatred: The History of Antisemitism. The book has been widely praised
by critics and has recently been selected as one of the Choice: Current Reviews for Academic Libraries “Outstanding Academic Titles” of 2012. During the workshop we will also be joined by Holocaust scholar Michael Berenbaum for a webinar conversation.
Online discussions and readings will give educators a chance to explore a variety of ways to engage with this material and these concepts. The workshop will allow interaction of participants with Facing History staff, and educators from around the globe. Prior to the workshop, please read the foreword by Sir Harold Evans
to A Convenient Hatred: The History of Antisemitism.
All educators are invited regardless of their computer use skill level. The workshop is designed for you to work at your own pace and convenience throughout the week. By registering for this workshop, you are committing to logging on to the site and participating in the online discussion at least three times over the 11-day workshop and a minimum online time commitment of 5 hours.
