Format for December 4th Members’ Open Forum on Engagement with Israel and Palestine

One thought on “Format for December 4th Members’ Open Forum on Engagement with Israel and Palestine”

  1. This was an excellent idea and virtually the only worthwhile experience I had at the AAA Meeting. It was refreshing to get beyond the settler-colonial critique featured in other sessions since It seems that an entirely new generation of anthropologists has only just discovered it. Cheers to Max Rodinson for the creation of such a venerable concept but 1967 was a long time ago. More innovative thinking is sorely needed–and was largely missing from the AM program. I have worked in and published on Palestinian rights for almost twenty years and was hoping to find something new at the AM. Instead, the formal panels were just an uncritical recycling of tired ideas.
