PSA 2017 program cover

IAS faculty member Julie Shayne attended the PSA April 6-8, 2017 where she presented a paper about her newest book project. Shayne is working on an edited collection tentatively titled Mobilizing the University: Curriculum, Space, and Solidarity. Mobilizing the University will be an interdisciplinary, edited collection which focuses on the relationship between social justice activism and the university in the Americas. Contributors will use an intersectional feminist framework to explore how grassroots activism impacts what we teach and learn in the university; how social justice activism impacts who has access to and support in the university; and what is the role of campus solidarity activism in off campus movements. MA in Cultural Studies graduate student Namita Paul is Assistant Editor, working with Shayne to solicit, review, and edit proposed chapters.
