Testimony as Activism

Publication Date



This panel discussion facilitated by Clark University’s Anita Fábos (IDCE) and Frances Tanzer (Strassler Center) brings together scholars and practitioners to talk about their work documenting experiences of people living with violence, conflict, and displacement. How do scholarly research and activism overlap in stories of displacement? How do displaced peoples establish archives when they are on the move? Historian Natalia Aleksiun (Graduate School of Jewish Studies, Touro College) joins activists Leora Kahn (PROOF: Media for Social Justice) and Noha Aboueldahab (Fellow in the Foreign Policy Program, Brookings Institution) to reflect on these questions and discuss the importance of revealing hidden narratives that challenge or correct official accounts.
