Feedback form is now closed.
In this session Will Allington presents his research findings on young people's resistance to Holocaust denial online, and his concept of "inoculative resistance" to hate and pseudo-intellectualism. Watch as he puts inoculative resistance into action through his "Holocaust Narrative" presentation, pretending to be a Holocaust denier in front of Jewish students to provide them with a safe exposure to the hatred. Take the opportunity to debate with Dr Allington's Holocaust denier persona, and explore how best to include inoculative resistance in education and everyday life, so as to better protect all people from antisemitism and other forms of hate and pseudo-intellectualism.
