Academia and Activism Symposium

Professor Margot Weiss sends word of a symposium happening two weeks from now:

This symposium brings together interdisciplinary scholars for two open roundtable discussions on the possibilities and difficulties of bridging academic and activist work. We ask: How is activist labor intellectual and when is intellectual labor activist? How might we historicize dichotomies of theory and practice, “ivory tower” and “real world”?

Roundtable I: Intellectuals as Activists/Activists as Intellectuals (10am – noon) with Karen Brodkin, Aimee Carrillo Rowe, Matthew Garrett, Mara Kaufman and Scott Morgensen

Roundtable II: The Politics of the (Neoliberal) Academy (2 – 4pm) with Purnima Bose, Janet Jakobsen, Jeff Maskovsky and Dylan Rodríguez

Date: Feb. 11
Time: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM
Place: Russell House
Cost: Free
