Description:

What does it mean to transcend theoretical solidarity with the oppressed and move to actual, embodied solidarity with the oppressed?

We are hosting a conversation with Dr. Larycia Hawkins, who was catapulted into the limelight in December when Wheaton College suspended her for wearing the hijab in solidarity with Muslim women who were and are targets of violence and harassment, as well as her thoughts on what she calls “embodied solidarity,” and her personal integrity, which have generated a national conversation about faith, courage, and the ethics of citizenship that is of pressing concern to NU students and the larger NU community. 

Co-sponsored by the Global Politics and Religion Research Group and Public Affairs Residential College
