In 2017, ErRS convenor Professor James Renton and Dr Ben Gidley (Birkbeck) published the paperback, Antisemitism and Islamophobia in Europe: A Shared Story? (Palgrave Macmillan). In The Sociological Review, Professor Ivan Kalmar (Toronto) wrote of the book, “Meticulously scholarly yet accessible in language, it should be required reading for both specialists and the general public interested in the issue.”

As a follow up to this book, Gidley and Renton are going to organise the next ErRS symposium, which will apply their framework to contemporary Islamophobia and antisemitism as global racisms. The event will take place in October this year.

Stay tuned.
