Symposium | 50 Years to 1968: A Sit-In Seminar


In 1968, the student body emerged on the global scene as a cohesive revolutionary movement fighting alongside oppressed people in India, East and Western Europe, South and North America, and articulating a new political horizon. 50 years later, what remains of that emancipatory promise? This all-day event will stage a critical homage to the 1968 sit-ins and alternative modes of congregation, inviting students, activists, scholars, artists and workers to share the space, sit together, talk, perform, meet and listen. The sit-in will create an open forum for participants from different groups and areas to debate, experiment and re-imagine the political roles and potential of the student body and its collaborators today – both inside and outside the university.

Lecture | The Arab Revolutions and Trade Union Activism: The Tunisian Case


How did the main Tunisian confederation, the UGTT, interact with the popular uprising that led to the departure of Ben Ali in 2011? What was the role played by the UGTT in the "political transition" leading to the adoption on January 26, 2014 of the first democratic constitution in the country’s history? How successful was the UGTT in neutralizing the risk of self-implosion caused by the different political and social crises? And what are the challenges that the UGTT faces in the new political landscape? Hela Yousfi (Paris Dauphine University) addresses these questions.

Lecture | Settler-Colonialism, Immigration, and White Nationalism in the US


Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz is a renowned anti-colonial feminist historian and activist who has written deeply influential books such as An Indigenous Peoples’ History of the United States. In this lecture she discusses how the conceptualization of the US as a “nation of immigrants” obscures the genocidal, militaristic and white nationalist roots of the capitalist state. Descendants of enslaved Africans, of the Indigenous Nations, and of Mexicans and Puerto Ricans cannot be subsumed into the concept of a “nation of immigrants.” This talk will address what this reality means for social justice organizing.

Talk | The Time for Truth: Lithuanian Wartime Atrocities -- Can Silence be Broken?


When the best-selling author and journalist Ruta Vanagaite (born in Šiauliai, Lithuania) discovered that her own relatives were complicit in the murder of Lithuanian Jews during the World War II era, she became determined to awaken the consciousness of her countrymen.

In the face of the hostility that her work has caused, Vanagaite is undertaking an international campaign for truth and justice. In her appearances and speeches all over the world, she discusses with various audiences her struggle to break the silence and the enormous controversy her work has stirred.
