In conversation with Jodi Dean, Michael Hardt and Sandro Mezzadra about student protests and Gaza

This week the Critical Conversation Collective, together with the Amsterdam School for Cultural Analysis and Framer Framed, will organise two special events in relation to the recent student protests over the connections of the University of Amsterdam with Israel, in view of the ongoing genocide in Gaza.

On Wednesday 22 May at 16:00 a Zoom-conversation will take place with Jodi Dean, an American political theorist and professor in the Political Science department at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in New York state. Jodi Dean was ‚Äėrelieved of her teaching responsibilities‚Äô on 13 April after she publicised an article on the blog of her publisher Verso. We will talk with her about the content of this article, in which she explicitly expresses the materiality of the Palestinian struggle for liberation.

On Thursday 23 May at 20:00 a Zoom-conversation will take place with Michael Hardt (the co-author, together with the late Toni Negri, of ‚ÄėEmpire‚Äô) and Sandro Mezzadra. They recently wrote an article for the blog Sidecar of the New Left Review. In this article they put the struggle of the Palestinians for freedom and justice in the broader perspective of the global struggle for equality, emancipation and autonomy. We will talk to them about the suggestions they bring forward to reinvigorate this quest.
