Academic Advisory Council Testimonial Collection

Jewish Voice for Peace is gathering testimonies from academics who have had their discussions of Israeli policy towards Palestine stifled by pro-Israel advocates under the premise of anti-Semitism, "civility," or "safety".

These could be stories about teaching: bringing up Palestine in the classroom, only to be shut down by administration, or investigated due to an outsider's complaint. Or perhaps stories of witnessing how the charge of anti-Semitism affects your students, either in their learning or in their extracurricular activism. We are interested in tracking these instances of harassment and/or intimidation.

We would also like to hear about how this culture of fear and intimidation affects your decisions about teaching and research. Are there course materials you don't assign, or research questions that aren't pursued, or conversations you avoid due to this culture?

Academics involved can choose to remain anonymous, or can have their name published along with the testimony, either way is fine.

Thanks so much!
