This week's guest is Ken Stern, director of the Bard Center for the Study of Hate. He's also an award winning author, scholar and attorney. Ken has argued before the Supreme Court and testified in front of Congress. Ken will be visiting the University of Montana community on November 6th as part of the President's lecture series. This conversation was recorded prior to the recent eruption and violence between Hamas and Israel. In this episode Justin asks Ken to define hate and whether anti-Semitism operates differently than other forms of hate. They briefly discuss the Israel-Palestine debate and how universities should approach exposing students to a variety of viewpoints and ideas.
