Abstract [en]

This paper aimed at understanding anti-Semitism and how it is perceived by Jewish inhabitants of Umeå municipality. Considerable research has previous been conducted, mainly by historians, and has proven invaluable to further enhance our understanding of anti-Semitism. The purpose of this paper was thus to explore how three Jewish swedes, residing in Umeå, underwent the process of awareness and understanding of anti-Semitism. The theoretical framework was based on Christopher MacDonald-Dennis previous qualitative study on Jewish undergraduates, and how the process toward awareness unfolds. This paper conducted its research through semi-structured interviews, and operationalization of the theory for analysis was characterized by inductive recognition of phases in a five-stage process. The results show that one respondent has faced anti-Semitism previously and is continually experiencing exposure because she is Jewish and originates from Israel. Another respondent has formerly been exposed to anti-Semitism but perceives today no anti-Semitism directed at her. The third respondent distinguish no anti-Semitism directed at him personally ever since he moved to Umeå but has formerly experienced anti-Semitism in other cities. The results show that the respondents have all gone through the first three phases of the five-stage process, but not the fourth nor the fifth. Although all respondents showed anticipation for a new constellation of a Jewish community, only one of them seemed ready to redefine the structures which are enabling anti-Semitism; which in turn is holding a larger Jewish community back. This paper concludes its finding with an appeal for more qualitative research on anti-Semitism in its local context.
