After the American Studies Association (ASA) declared its support in December for an international boycott of Israeli academic institutions, President Tom Rochon and other academic executives across the country hastened to condemn the ASA's action and the boycott.
Cornell Professor and ASA member Eric Cheyfitz will present the case for the resolution, as well as responses to it, at a public talk on Tuesday, February 25, at 7:00 p.m. in Klingenstein Lounge, Campus Center.
The ASA has become the center of a firestorm. A bill in front of the New York State legislature that would strip funding from university groups involved in the boycott. Similar measures are being considered in other state legislatures and in the U.S. Congress.
The library is offering a study guide for Cheyfitz's talk. The event is cosponsored by the Departments of English and Politics; Center for the Study of Culture, Race, and Ethnicity; and Park Center for Independent Media.
