    Abstract: This chapter examines the value and limits of definitions in addressing antisemitism and Islamophobia, two relatively recent terms conveying a lengthy history of animosity and violence. Both terms have been subject in recent decades to controversy over their meaning and function in political and legal efforts to combat the spread of bigoted prejudice in society. We trace the various, constantly shifting, meanings of the two terms and point to the contingent political contexts that propelled these shifts over time. The dynamic nature of definitions, we argue, stems not only from changing views of the phenomena, but also from the fact that definitions perform a rhetorical function, serving at times to discredit political opponents. Drawing on the chapters collected in this volume, we propose three, interrelated, historical trajectories to understand the politics of definition: the long view, which situates the question of definition within a history of political engagements which have aimed to define Jews, Muslims, and the prejudice against them; the short view, focusing on how key events of the twentieth century affected the nature and political role of definitions of racist prejudice in different contexts; and a critical examination of present-day political efforts to advance definition as a purported key to suppress antisemitism and Islamophobia. We argue that the wish to capture the “essence” of antisemitism and Islamophobia without reckoning with the concepts’ historical and political load neither promotes understanding of the phenomena nor does it effectively help to combat them.

    Abstract: The German language holds an ambivalent and controversial place in the modern history of European Jews, representing different-often conflicting-historical currents. It was the language of the German classics, of German Jewish writers and scientists, of Central European Jewish culture, and of Herzl and the Zionist movement. But it was also the language of Hitler, Goebbels, and the German guards in Nazi concentration camps. The crucial role of German in the formation of Jewish national culture and politics in the late nineteenth century has been largely overshadowed by the catastrophic events that befell Jews under Nazi rule. German as a Jewish Problem tells the Jewish history of the German language, focusing on Jewish national movements in Central and Eastern Europe and Palestine/Israel. Marc Volovici considers key writers and activists whose work reflected the multilingual nature of the Jewish national sphere and the centrality of the German language within it, and argues that it is impossible to understand the histories of modern Hebrew and Yiddish without situating them in relation to German. This book offers a new understanding of the language problem in modern Jewish history, turning to German to illuminate the questions and dilemmas that largely defined the experience of European Jews in the age of nationalism

    Abstract: "This book, the first to explore the politics of definitions from an interdisciplinary perspective, encourages readers to reconsider the value and limits of definitions in confronting antisemitism and Islamophobia. In recent years, definitions of antisemitism and Islamophobia have become central to the struggle to combat the hostility, harassment and discrimination experienced by Jews and Muslims. Yet these definitions have also provoked fierce controversy: critics have questioned whether they are fit for purpose, or have criticised them as unwelcome attempts to restrict freedom of expression. In this edited collection, historians, social scientists and philosophers reflect on definitions of antisemitism and Islamophobia in both the past and the present. Its contributors investigate the different historical contexts which have shaped definitions and examine their different political purposes and meanings, as well as addressing contemporary debates, and identifying ways for us to move beyond our current impasse. This book therefore provides a broad and new perspective from which to comprehend present day minority politics." --
