This is a presentation made in the frame of a course on "Culture and Identity" at Stockholm University for students at the level of French III. The goal is to explore the consequences of the Dreyfus scandal (1894-1906) in France and abroad. The Dreyfus affair is not simply a historical scandal where the military staff was implicated, it is a topic for anthropological studies to understand the falsifications, the fake news and the attitudes of the different involved actors of this scandal. The rise of anti-Semitism with the increasingly important role of the press is also mentioned.
