an interdisciplinary symposium


Lehman College, City University of New York


Activism in Academia is an interdisciplinary, one-day symposium organized to initiate a larger conversation between CUNY and non-CUNY faculty and students about the value of apolitical and political work in the university as it relates to activism within underrepresented communities. How do we incorporate activism in our classrooms, on our campuses, and in our scholarship? Faculty, graduate students, and undergraduates will engage in discussion and debate through various panels and performances. This year’s panels focus on the #MeToo Movement, Mexico and border control controversy, as well as decolonizing the academy through Twitter and social media collectives.
