Rooms 9205/9206/9207
Reception to follow

Please join us for a roundtable discussion featuring J. Kēhaulani Kauanui (Wesleyan University), Jasbir Puar (Rutgers University), Radhika Sainath (Palestine Legal), and Robyn Spencer (Lehman College & The Graduate Center). Moderated by Jessica Stites Mor (University of British Columbia).

Please note: this event will not be live-streamed. 

Co-sponsored by the Center for Place, Culture, and Politics

This round-table is part of a series of events aimed at launching a network of scholars and activists engaged with the question of international solidarity, organized by Anna Bernard (King’s College London), Jessica Stites Mor (University of British Columbia), and Anthony Alessandrini (CUNY). We are particularly interested in the forgotten and ephemeral connections, sites, and documents of radical left solidarities; movements centered on decolonization, political and social equality, and redistributive justice; south-south as well as north-south solidarities; the techniques and functions of cultural solidarity activism; and our responsibilities as critics and scholars in relation to international solidarity movements. Our goal is to both work towards new understandings of international solidarity and to provide a means to mobilize knowledge between scholars and activists in the field.
