WHAT ARE WORDS FOR?
Join HRLA for a panel and conversation about statements and solidarity. (RESCHEDULED from 2/6)
February 12 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm
Endorsements of PACBI, calls for ceasefire, individual expressions of solidarity — what do different kinds of statements do? What does it mean to dismiss a statement as performative? If words count for so little, why is so much effort spent on controlling who can say what and where?
This panel will feature people who have participated in statement writing and experienced the ripple effects created by expressions of solidarity with the struggle for Palestinian liberation. This is a chance for us to connect and support each other as we take up the Palestinian Campaign for Academic and Cultural Boycott and confront efforts to limit, contain and dismantle solidarity work.
