The Jewish Question in Post-Revolutionary France: Reflections on Jews, Jewishness, and Antisemitism (1789-2014)

In 1791, France stood alone as the first European country to emancipate the Jews of its territory. And yet, by the end of the nineteenth century, rampant antisemitism would challenge the French republic, its institutions, and the country’s national narrative as the home of human rights. In the twentieth century, the citizenship of Jews was once again at issue, and it is widely noted that there has been a spike in antisemitic activity since the turn of this, the twenty-first century, precisely the period in which I was teaching, researching, and living in Paris and Nice. Focusing on the place of Jews, jewishness, and antisemitism in French society, cultural production and cultural politics, this presentation provides a chronological survey and introduction to issues and images associated with is known in France as “the Jewish question.”
