Monday, November 26
Segal Theatre
All Day Seminar

FREE + Open to public. First come, first served.

In 1968, the student body emerged on the global scene as a cohesive revolutionary movement fighting alongside oppressed people in India, East and Western Europe, South and North America, and articulating a new political horizon. 50 years later, what remains of that emancipatory promise?

In an all-day event, the Segal Center and the Doctoral Students of Theatre and Performance will stage a critical homage to the 1968 sit-ins and alternative modes of congregation, inviting students,
activists, scholars, artists and workers to share the space, sit together, talk, perform, meet and listen. The sit-in at the Segal will create an open forum for participants from different groups and areas to debate, experiment and re-imagine the political roles and potential of the student body and its collaborators today – both inside and outside the university.

Created in collaboration with Doctoral Students of Theatre and Performance, Amir Farjoun and Mara Valderrama.
