I’ve got three very exciting speaking engagements coming up in the next few weeks, with others in the works. I’ll be updating the full list as the year goes on at the Speaking page on the blog — check back there for more as the fall semester unfolds.
This Saturday, September 28, I’ll be giving a keynote speech at a conference of the Connecticut Students Organization, a new statewide student group. I’ll be talking about the importance of statewide associations in American student activism, and about some of the pitfalls such groups face when they’re getting organized.
The next day, Sunday, September 29, I’ll be speaking at BHQFU as part of their fall lecture series on education. I’ll be discussing the roots of contemporary student organizing struggles in the higher education transformations of the 1970s and the neglected but transformative campus activist movements of that decade.
And on Saturday, October 19, I’ll be participating in a panel discussion capping off a CUNY Student Summit that’s being held downtown. On that panel, a group of past and present student organizers from across New York will be talking about the history of activism in the state and its relevance to the organizers of today.
