Religious Studies Faculty Support #ScholarStrike

AAR Calls on Institutions to Support Faculty in #ScholarStrike

Faculty in the Department of Religious Studies express their support for and solidarity with #ScholarStrike, a call for a general strike of 48 hours on September 8 and 9 to take a collective stand against police brutality and extrajudicial violence in the United States.

Faculty and students will be engaging in teach-in events and each of us will take time on September 8-9 to reflect seriously on the issues raised from both historical and contemporary perspectives. Additional information about #ScholarStrike can be found in these articles:
