Student Protest, Faculty Solidarity — A Conversation

BISR Facebook Page (

As the student anti-war protest movement continues to grow, and Gaza solidarity encampments continue popping up across college and university campuses all over the city and all over the world, the institutional backlash has been immense, with administrations resorting to police intervention and escalating into violence. To provide some perspective on the experience of faculty in solidarity with their students, BISR will convene an online conversation with faculty members who have employment or appointment relationships with institutions where solidarity encampments are presently embattled or recently dismantled. How do faculty understand their positions relative to mega-institutions like Columbia University and City University of New York? In what ways are faculty able to support the activism of their students? How do faculty navigate competing narratives surrounding the interests of the student protests? What does solidarity mean?

Please join us Monday, May 6th, at 4pm ET, as we broach these questions in an informal, online conversation with BISR faculty Tony Alessandrini (CUNY), Sami Al-Daghistani (Oslo/Columbia), Robyn Marasco (CUNY), and Jude Webre (Columbia/NYU). The event will livestream to the BISR Facebook page and be available for later viewing on the BISR YouTube page and elsewhere. Please RSVP below.
