Nov 26 | “A Sit-in at the Library: ’68 Revisited”


On Monday November 26th, the Graduate Center library will open its doors to host “A Sit-in at the Library: ’68 Revisited,” a free and public forum of exchange concerning the political status and stakes of students today. Initiated by students at the department of theatre and performance, the event seeks to render the political questions that haunt the university more visible, tangible, and social: 50 years after the student movement of ’68, what coalitions and networks of solidarity and resistance do students maintain—and what struggles are avoided or perhaps neglected? What political possibilities does a “student” status afford, and what possibilities should it afford?The ground floor of the library will be temporarily rearranged and equipped with a computer and projector, bulletin boards, and paper supplies, providing an open space to host your ideas, questions, proposals, performances, teach-ins, direct action or anything else. Come take part, study, socialize, talk and listen!!

Students and non-students alike are welcome!

The event will include a performance of The Fall by

Sister Sylvester.



Sponsored by the DSC and the Segal Center.
