WGS Faculty Response to the Ongoing Nakba in Palestine

Author: WGS Faculty
November 17, 2023

The Faculty of Women and Gender Studies Department answers the call to uplift the Palestinian right to resist and exist. In our field of transnational feminisms, we know and teach the centrality of settler colonialism, active warfare, everyday militarism, gendered and sexual unfreedoms, racial capitalism and militarized neoliberalism. As educators in the U.S., we stand firm in our principles for justice and we stand in solidarity with Palestinians.
