Socialist Worker – Why was BDS beaten at the MLA conference?
(Description note, “Bill Mullen, a professor of American Studies at Purdue University and a leading voice in the boycott, divestment and sanctions campaign against Israeli apartheid, explains the outcome of an effort to get the Modern Language Association to stand in solidarity with Palestinian rights–and what lessons we can draw for the future….’At a town hall meeting organized by the association, a diverse array of mostly younger scholars, graduate students and longtime BDS activists argued forcefully that Israel’s founding as a settler-colonial, racist, apartheid state was buttressed by Israeli universities that develop and manufacture weapons to support the occupation and discriminate against Palestinian applicants…’”)

September 4, 2013: SocialistWorker.org – Where Zionism meets neoliberalism: Tithi Bhattacharya and Bill Mullen, professors at Purdue University, report on the relationship between Israel and American university administrators. (Description note – quote from article, “In this case, the University of Illinois shows us how the “neoliberal” university allies itself with Zionism as a settler-colonial project. The illegal occupation of Palestine has helped savvy university presidents and trustees earn handsome dividends, while using their positions to reject criticisms of Israel at the universities they head. The solution is to de-Zionize our campuses…This is why, at this juncture in history, the boycott, divest and sanctions movement against Israel, and faculty unionization should go hand and in hand.”)
