Session Submission Type: Non-Paper Session: Dialogue Format


Scholars Under Attack (paired with Students Under Attack) focuses on responses to the range of actions against academics in US colleges and universities, from openly political broadsides to supposed budget cuts that target controversial or inconvenient programs, centers and departments. This roundtable discussion will be chaired by Robin D.G. Kelley (UCLA), who will be joined by Rabab Abdulhadi at San Francisco State, who has been targeted for allegedly consorting with "terrorists"; Sandy Soto at the University of Arizona in Tucson, who was involved in the fight to defend Ethnic Studies in that state; DesireƩ Rowe at the University of South Carolina Upstate, who has been struggling to save their Center for Women's and Gender Studies, and Ardis Cameron at the University of Southern Maine, who has been organizing support for the American and New England Studies program there. Following an introductory overview, panelists will speak for 10 minutes each, followed by discussion among panelists, and questions and comments from the audience.
