Join University of Toronto Mark S. Bonham Centre Fellows Sarah Schulman and Richard Fung for an engaging conversation about Schulman’s latest book, Israel/Palestine and the Queer International.

Schulman’s new book is a chronicle of her political awakening and involvement in the Palestine liberation movement. In her book, Schulman introduces us to anti-occupation activists in Tel Aviv and queer Palestinian activists in the West Bank. She takes us from New York to Jerusalem, Ramallah, Madrid, Berlin, and Toronto as she explores the developing movement for international LGBTQ support for Palestinians.

Sarah Schulman is the author of 16 books as well as plays and films. She holds a Fulbright in Judaic Studies and is the director of the Homonationalism and Pinkwashing Conference at the City University of NY where she is a Distinguished Professor. She is a Fellow at The Mark S. Bonham Center of the University of Toronto.

Richard Fung is an award winning video artist and writer, and associate professor in the Faculty of Art at OCAD University. He is a Fellow at the Mark S. Bonham Centre for Sexual Diversity Studies at the University of Toronto.
