INTRODUCTION TO ANTI-JUDAISM, FANTASY, AND MEDIEVAL LITERATURE JUDITH ROSENTHAL The four essays in this cluster derive from an NEH Seminar entitled "Absence and Presence: The Jew in Early English Literature." '1'he semi- nar took place during a seven-week period in the summer of 1996 on the campus of SUNY, Stony Brook, under the direction of Stephen Spector. The original members were Leslie Aarons, Al David, Seymour Kleinberg, Diane Levine, Ziva Piltch, Judith Rosenthal, Pauline Scott, Andy Scheil, Lauren Silberman, Carole Stone, Jack Sweeney, and Linda Weinhouse. The members were not only from the field of English lite- rature, but also from philosophy and anthropology. As the group ana- lyzed the Christian prejudice against a people who were historically absent in England, as the Jews were from 1290-1665, it also drew on its knowledge of theology, Judaica, art history, and psychoanalysis in an attempt to explain the intensifying animosity in the literature of this period. 'I'he results of our work were presented at a roundtable discussion at the International Congress on Medieval Studies at Western Michigan University at Kalamazoo, Michigan, in 1997. I wish to thank the for- mer editor of Medieval Encounters, Gordon Newby, for the kind interest
