SAC presents: Conversation on Academic Spaces and Dissent
204 Maxwell Hall
Conversation on Academic Spaces and Dissent
In light of recent and ongoing national and international protests against state-supported breach of civil liberties on university campuses in India, please join us in solidarity with concerned students and faculty in talking about dissent within academic spaces across different nation-state contexts. We will begin the conversation contextualizing recent student agitations in India and the US, while recognizing differences and scales of state power. We will then move towards sharing our experiences of witnessing, expressing or confronting dissent within the academy, as well as strategies of coping borne out of these experiences. Moving forward, we hope to be able to build on this conversation to connect with concerned others on campuses and in other educational spaces in India, the US, and elsewhere.
Light refreshments will be provided.
Open to the public.
